EAGLE MOUNTAIN, Utah - Leslie Erickson, 48, is facing three counts of child abuse charges after taking her five-year-old girl to the hospital in critical condition. Erickson and her husband took their daughter to get medical help . They told police she fell and hit her head, but doctors at the hospital disagreed. They believe the child suffered blunt force trauma and showed signs of strangulation.
"They took the girl to surgery, they and had to remove a portion of her [victim's] skull to relieve pressure that was building inside her skull inside the brain, from the swelling...she is in critical condition, they weren't sure she'd survive the night," says Utah County Sheriff Sgt. Spence Cannon.
Police say two other children in the home were recently injured and Erickson has been charged with child abuse involving those injuries as well.
The injuries to the other children were not severe enough for them to be hospitalized.http://www.fox13now.com/news/kstu-saratoga-woman-accused-child-abuse,0,2588572.story

What is this world coming to ?? And all accused of abuse come up with the same excuse she/he bumped their head. Bumping your head doesn't cause blunt force trauma and swelling. If it did we all would be dead am I right ?Also what are the chances that all the kids had recent injuries from whatever happened "accidentally"

My first thought too. I know that I, for one, have completely stopped bathing my children because I'm afraid the bathtub will just get up and bitch slap them.

An Eagle Mountain husband and wife pleaded not guilty Tuesday to abusing three children in their care.
. . . During Tuesday's hearing Judge Steven Hansen scheduled a three-week trial for the couple beginning in August.
. . .
While Leslie Erickson reportedly claimed the girl tripped on a rug and hit her head on the bathroom floor, doctors told investigators the girl's injuries were caused by a force equal to an unrestrained child hitting her head on a windshield in a car accident. She also allegedly had injuries consistent with strangulation and injuries in various stages of healing from "head to toe."
According to police, both Erickson and her husband withheld information or gave false statements to doctors when asked how long the girl was without oxygen.
But attorney Michael Langford said Tuesday that Erickson was pleased to be moving forward with the case.
"She's looking forward to getting her day in court," Langford said. "She's a wonderful mother."
Langford explained that the trial would require three weeks due to the number of witnesses who will be called to testify.http://www.heraldextra.com/news/local/central/provo/article_eddf15f0-9dba-5ce8-a751-5ca49e009a55.html

So not a killer bath tub but a killer bathroom floor, with the rug as an accessory.
Leslie looks like a spiteful, mean bitch. Any news on how the little girl is?
The couple's charges stem from allegations that Leslie abused three of her adopted children.
WTF? Another couple of freaktards who ADOPT kids to abuse! And 'three of' makes it sound like there were more kids? Otherwise wouldn't they say 'her three adopted children'?

DAMN that's an ugly bitch.

This pic just makes me want to smack this bitch.
Those poor kids deserved to be loved and cherished, not abused and beaten. Dumb bitch and her husband deserve to be locked away forever. Maybe Bubba and Big Bertha can "adopt" them and knock their heads around a little.

- In a wavering, barely audible whisper, a mother pleaded guilty Tuesday morning to abusing her children. Seconds later, her husband quietly bowed his head and pleaded guilty as well. . . .
Two boys also were physically abused, according to prosecutors, and all three children were allegedly forced to stand for hours without meals. If the children wet their beds they were reportedly required to stand in a tub for hours as well.
Leslie allegedly told police she disciplines the children by striking the bottoms of their feet and toes with a belt, while Gary reportedly also admitted to using a belt on the children. . . .
Following the Ericksons' hearing Tuesday, Archuleta said that the entire experience had been difficult for the couple.
"What a hellish experience they've been through," he said. "They lost nine children as a result of these allegations." Oh, boo hoo. It was a hellish experience for those 9 children having those monsters as parents.
Prosecutor Julia Thomas said that the children have since been adopted and that they are in therapy. . . .
The Ericksons will both be sentenced on Oct. 4. Leslie faces a possible one- to 15-year sentence in prison for her second-degree felony conviction, as well as up to a year in jail for each misdemeanor. Gary also could receive a year in jail for each of his misdemeanor convictions. Thomas said that prosecutors have not made any agreements with the couple regarding sentencing recommendations.
Those are crap sentences IMO.

All People do not adopt or take children in to foster because they just are tickled pink about them...they adopt and/or foster them for money. Services....allotments..entitlements....All those adopted kids...yet they look a hot mess! Big red flag. Why the Departments handling adoption didn't see "devil" in their face, check their financials and see they needed help, or why they allow so many adoptions to the same people....common fucking sense. This bitch is not Marry Poppins, she looks like an ugly witch from hell, not a child lover! Some people can't hide their evil and this bitch is one of them. Another flag is much older couples "old school" couples ---wanting to adopt. How many older couples do you know wanna stay raising young children rather than retire? Also, their disciplinary techniques are propably gonna involve a belt as well! I wanna know what cunt at these agencies are falling for these "adoption" stories and giving kids away. I love how the prosecuter says the kids have since been adopted....what again? By whom? For what reasons? We have so many unwanted children that we are quick to give them up to anyone who will take them in to get them off the state's hands....this is bullshit.! These children do not get a proper start at life, especially if it ends before the age of 5!

Horseshit. You're basing your opinion on the stories we see here...which is just a tiny fraction of the thousands of children that are adopted every day by loving families.
I have friends who were adopted and they had the best families possible. My niece is adopted and no one in the world could love her more than her parents do.
My aunt has been fostering and adopting for over 20 years and in that time she has adopted over 15 kids (not all at the same time) and every single one of them will tell you that she and my uncle gave them the family they longed for. They're in their 50's and they still dedicate theirs lives to raising the children that nobody else wanted.
Oh and by the way, adopting isn't like fostering. Once you adopt you don't get any money from the state. My best friend adopted his daughter and the only benefit he gets is free access to state parks. whoopty fucking doo.
