BALTIMORE – A Maryland woman who pleaded guilty to being part of a religious cult that starved her toddler son to death will soon be released from the Baltimore jail.

Lawyers on both sides say they've agreed to send Ria Ramkissoon to a counseling center in rural northeast Maryland.

Ramkissoon is set to receive a 20-year suspended sentence under her plea deal. But a sentencing hearing Tuesday was postponed because her co-defendants have not yet gone on trial. She was one of five people charged in the death of 1-year-old Javon Thompson.

Authorities say the five starved the child because he did not say "Amen" after meals. Police found his body in a suitcase in Philadelphia.

Ramkissoon agreed to testify against the four other cult members as part of her plea deal.

 

Its disgusting how she kills her baby blames something else and is then gets let go, I dont see as a mother let that happen.

if anyone else has been following the story then they already heard but what do you think about the fact she only agreed to plead guilty if they agreed that if the child was reincarnated she would be freed? To me that goes towards showing how brainwashed this girl was... I don't agree she should get off entirely but a 20 year sentence for a girl who was obviously not of sound mind is a bit harsh...   I heard somewhere that there is a group pushing for permanant sterilization of anyone convicted of crimes against children.. breeding more victims as it were.. what do you think?

Sorry, but I don't even remember God telling us in the bible that if we DON'T say amen, we don't get to eat.  This child relied solely upon these people and they killed him over this.  This is not how God wants to be viewed.  This is insane.

That is absolutely horrible.  I can not believe that any judge or lawyer or whatever would give her a plea bargin at all .. she should be in jail for the rest of her life.. or in a straight jacket in a padded room.. that is insane...


I just.. wow. :[
