L.A. Judge Dismisses Charge
In Ashcraft Case

by Joshua Sharp - June 13th, 2007 - USC Daily Trojan

A second Los Angeles judge threw out the murder charge against a suspended USC student accused of killing her newborn child on Tuesday.

Holly Ashcraft, a 22-year-old architecture major who has stood trial for two years, still faces a June 27 hearing for one charge of child abuse.

Ashcraft was arrested in October 2005 after a newborn was found in a Dumpster behind the 29th Street Cafe. DNA evidence proved it was her son.

Prosecuting Deputy District Attorney Franco Barrata had cited a coroner's conclusion that the baby was born alive, but defense attorney Mark Geragos had repeatedly challenged that assertion in court.

What is ignored in this case is that this girl had already had another baby disappear under similar circumstances the year before this case. It seems typical of our courts that the unlikely probability of one girl having two children die under these exact same bizarre circumstances cannot be mentioned. It is not, according to our liberal judges, evidence of murder. It is just "bad luck". Poor girl. Send her home and lets see if she kills a third baby. After all. It is just a baby, not a real person. Look at her grin in the picture above.

Our courts are sick!
