Stephen was sentenced yesterdat. It couldn't have gone much better. Stephen tried to cry diabetes again, but the judge didn't buy it. Probably because the judge was an insulin dependent diabetic himself. Stephen was sentenced to the maximum sentence of 12 months and taken into custody right then. I got to watch him be handcuffed and escorted across the street to the jail.
The judge stated, "sometimes parole is appropriate when the person can be treated in a way that allows then to rejoin society with the trust that another child will not be harmed. This situation is not one of those." I was so happy that he got the full sentence. He will probably appeal, but he probably won't get anything less than what he has now. The prosecutor even said that she had never been a party to a 4th degree assault case where there was a broken bone involved, and never with a child so young as Noah was.
Stephen was slapped in the face today... considering they were asking for work release. HA! Stephen is also not allowed around Noah, myself, or my family. This would include Isaac. That is a huge relief. Stephen will have a hell of a time trying to get any visitation after this.
Stephen also tried to stare me down after he was sentenced. He glared at me like it was my fault. I just glared back... and he looked away first. He also had the audacity to smirk on his way out of the courtroom while handcuffed and escorted by the police. I am so relieved to have this over and done with.
