People who shouldn’t have kids: Volume 648431564

by Caleb Reading

A couple whose infant daughter died of meningitis after they treated her with prayer instead of medicine were sentenced to a year of weekends in jail.

Richard Wiebe, 30, and Agnes Wiebe, 31, were sentenced Friday and were to surrender next month. They pleaded no contest last month to child abuse and involuntary manslaughter.

Well at least they got some sort of jail time (instead of being given a “suffered enough” get out of jail free card), but this is really just a slap on the wrist. Did the court take into account how much physical torture this child went through before death? Untreated meningitis for god’s sake. Pardon the pun.
