Judge Wiggins: Anti-Mother Again

Ms. Hernandez made a serious and fatal mistake.  She left her son, Nathan, in his car seat for six hours while she was at work at the Catholic Diocese in July, on a day when the high temperature reached 90 degrees. She intended to drop the boy off at day care and didn’t realize the baby was in the car until she went to pick up another child.

Judge Wiggins, who has demonstrated herself to be less than understanding of maternal instinct and generally shown herself to be antimother in many cases over the last decade, has allowed the prosecution of this poor mother to go forward and be presented to a grand jury.  Inept Arlington Judge Esther Wiggins improbably found probable cause Monday to continue with a charge of felony neglect against 32-year-old Zoraida Magali Conde Hernandez.

The irony is that this obvious mistake by this poor mother, whose loss of her child has caused her to suffer enough, is going before a grand jury, but Judge Wiggins said nothing about the failure to prosecute the Arlington Sheriff’s Deputy who beat and tasered 11 year old Ashlie Mae O’Brien in the public hallway outside of her office door on December 7, 2011.

Double standard — prosecute the poor mother, while letting the criminal Arlington Sheriff’s Deputy go free.   Did you expect any better from the corrupt Arlington County Family Court?  Nah!
