Mother Involved in Abortion on 12-Year-Old

The girl’s mother, thirty-three year-old, was charged with procuring an abortion, cruelty to a child, and failure to make a report to the children’s registry.

The case was tried by the Judge after the prosecution and court accepted an application to have the case heard by a judge alone.

Judge Harris who was the sole decision maker in this case, freed the Doctor and the girl’s mother, after the girl when sworn in to give her testimony told the judge that she did not wish participate in the court any further.
