Trying to get sympathy for Nesselroad-Slaby, her defense lawyer R. Scott Croswell III, says she is shocked and distraught over the death of her daughter....
Croswell is now claiming Nesselroad-Slaby forgot she left her sleeping daughter in the SUV (No shit idiot!) and that she got distracted from her "normal routine" of dropping off her daughter at the baby sitter because she stopped to buy doughnuts on her way to work....
"There is not the first hint that she intended to leave the child in that automobile," Croswell said. "I know she's a good mother."
Ohio law is clear that Nesselroad-Slaby shouldn't be charged in the death of Cecilia, Croswell said.
Croswell's statements are in direct conflict with what Nesselroad-Slaby first told police. Nesselroad-Slaby and school officials first stated that she DID NOT usually drop the child off at daycare or the babysitter....
Nesselroad-Slaby told police she did not typically take her 2-year-old daughter to day care and let the child sleep as she ran some errands.
She bought doughnuts at a Union Township bakery about a mile from Glen Este Middle School, where she is assistant principal.
Police said security cameras in the school parking lot show Nesselroad-Slaby walk out of the building once to retrieve from the back seat some more of the doughnuts, which she served during a morning presentation.
Police said the doughnuts were on the seat next to Cecilia Slaby's car seat.
Clermont County Prosecutor Don White must be buying into this garbage. White, is in possession of school security video showing her returning to the SUV and getting doughnuts on the seat next to her daughter, Nesselroad-Slaby has not yet been charged and the case has not been presented to the grand jury.
White has said he is unsure whether to charge her as he feels it was an obvious accident and is having trouble deciding if her actions warrant charges of Child Endangering.
From Ohio Revised Code --
Section 2919.22 Endangering childrenWhile not an attorney, I believe her actions also warrant being charged with involuntary manslaughter and I would be more inclined to impose an Iranian type sentence on this women.
