Killer Mom Insists on Plea

Amy Beyers pleads guilty to killing her 7-month-old child. She could've entered an open plea that would have allowed the judge to give her a lighter sentence. But against the advice of counsel she took the stiffer 15 to 30 years sentence.

It appears Beyers believes she deserves the longer sentence for her terrible crime. Maybe she does. There is something strangely refreshing and even noble in Beyers willingness to take responsibility for her actions and do more time behind bars rather than less.

She asked to start her time in state prison immediately so she can begin the counseling she so obviously needs. We wish her well.
