77 days for the murder of a 16mth old...WTH!

Baby Alissa was given up by her birth mom Kelli to Kelli's cousin Christy Shaffer. Who in just three months managed to break Alissa's arm, shove something so hard into Alissa's mouth it left a gaping wound in it, rip out Alissa's hair, beat her and finally managed to wack her upside the head killing her. Christy was charged merely with neglect and served only 77 days in jail because her father has connections. I as a mother of two beautiful children cannot stand by and let this happen. On November 2nd of this year, Alissa would be 5 years old. My gift to her is to try and help Bernice Bucaffari get all the signatures she needs get this re-trial. Every single day until we get all the signatures needed and then some, i will be posting Alissa's page and petition. This is my way of fighting for her. Please share this for at least one day. And if you are affected by it the way i am, please write a letter insisting that this case be re-opened and Christy Shaffer be charged accordingly for MURDER.

She can be re-tried. She was never charged with murder. This is not double jeopardy. She was let go on a plea of Neglect Class B- a charge in which the victim is still alive. The petition is for the state attorney general to open up a murder investigation on this child abuser/killer.

Please visit Fighting Against The Injustice Done To Alissa. Beth Guersey on Face Book. Support in getting her justice.
Also to set the record correct Alissa's mommy did not give her away to the person who eventually killed her. The cousin Christy Shaffer said she would take Alissa and the other 2 children until Alissa's mom could get better since she spiraled down hill after Alissa's dad, her significant other died in a car accident. Then things got bad, Alissa was bei g abused and slipped through the cracks ultimately leading to her death. There is a lot of corruption and Alissa needs our help to be her voice!

Also in this case Chrsity was never charged so she can be tried for murder... Double jeopardy does not apply in this case!

Double jeopardy?  I'm not sure that she can be tried again.

OP send this information of  to  the Nancy Grace show.  I know how annoying she is, but she WILL expose this case to millions and get answers and interviews with anyone connected with this case.  Saying that, I am disgusted.  I'm in NO way prone to violence, but I have this urge to pull every strand of hair out of this bitch's head.  I'm looking over at one of our granddaughters at this very moment and I don't understand how any person could harm a beautiful, defenseless child.  This bitch deserves a special place in hell and if there is one, I want her to go there.  But first I'd like to see her go to jail for the rest of her natural born life.

We have really been trying to get Nancy Grace on it. It's harder than it seems. There are 80k supporters who have been after her and nothing yet. Lisa Guerrero is looking into it. It may be covered by her. I'm not stopping my fight for Alissa until the bitch pays for it.

It isn't double jeopardy. Christy was never charged with murder.
