Woman Gets Prison Time For Smothering Two-Month-Old Baby, She Had Killed Another Child Same Way

Jessica Harper sentenced for smothering two month old baby

A Pennsylvania woman will spend 11 to 22 years in prison for smothering her two-month-old son.

According to Lancaster Online, the infant died of suffocation in 2016 as he shared a bed with his mother, Jessica Harper. In a plea agreement, Harper pleaded no contest Monday to the charges of endangering a child and third-degree murder.

The presiding judge, Margaret Miller revealed that she was hardly impressed by Harper’s refusal to admit guilt. The judge told the 3o-year-old that even though she had been handed out a prison sentence, she still remained miles away from genuine accountability and acceptance if she refused to admit that she did wrong.

Penn Live is reporting that Jessica Harper ignored a doctor’s recommendations about co-sleeping with her two-month-old son. The mother of five from multiple fathers told investigators that she woke up and found out that the baby was not breathing. A post-mortem examination would later determine the manner of death as asphyxiation.
