Mom gets 24-year sentence for selling infant for pornography: Is this sentence long enough?

  • Yes, if we create undue punishment for a given crime then we incentivize the commiting of greater crimes.

    Crimes against children are considered especially grievous, but we must consider the fact that the more severely we punish a given crime, the more we create an incentive for the commitment of greater crimes. For instance, if we punish all child pornographers with the severest penalties such as life imprisonment or the death penalty, then there is a low cost-benefit situation for the perpetrators to commit murder in order to cover up their tracks. If they are caught then they will receive the same punishment whether they just created child pornography or did so and murdered the victim. Yet, if they murder the victim, they are far less likely to get caught. Thus we must always leave ample room to escalate severity of punishment in proportion to the degree of the offense.

  • Ideally, any crimes against children should be life in jail.

    As strange as it feels to say, it is fortunate that the child was still just an infant. It is be too young to form any memories from this event, so it actually will not be emotionally scarred for life.

    A person doesn't commit a crime assuming they will be caught. Therefore, a pedophile won't make the decision of releasing/murdering a child based on sentence length.

    What that woman did was an insanely immoral and selfish act, and I sincerely hope that she is never allowed contact with children after her release.

  • No, she deserves a longer sentence

    The man she sold her daughter to got a much longer sentence, and the mom deserves the same. There is no excuse for doing such a thing. Not only is it immoral, but it puts the child's life in danger and has the potential to permanently mentally scar the child, even if she does not actively remember it happening.

  • No she did not

    People who do that should be locked up, not i prison, but in an insane asylum, because they are morally insane, this is the kind of crap the Muslims (Terror enthusiasts) do, Mark 9:42:
    "And whosoever shall (entice to sin) one of these little ones that believe in me, it is better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and he were cast into the sea."

  • A man would have been sentenced for longer as

  • Mother should be sentenced to life without parole

    Honestly, if a mother willingly sells their infant to another for pornography and knows it is for pornography, this mother should be sentenced to life without parole. This poor infant has no chance at having a "normal" life and this mother is subjecting this infant to child pornography and regardless of what happens in the future, that child is going to be developmentally impacted.

  • Life in Jail

    This woman should get life in jail because it is an absolute sin what she did. Our duties as adults or parents are to protect children and take them out of harm's way. This woman put a child in harm's way. I don't know how she can live with herself, but she should get life in jail for what she did.
