Cat defends baby from babysitter
This Child's Babysitter Abused Him But Won't Be Charged For the Craziest Reason
An Oregon couple dared to go on a date night, leaving their one-year-old son in what they thought were the capable hands of their babysitter.
Instead, when they got home, they heard their child screaming while their babysitter slept on the couch, and the next morning, in the light of day, they saw that their little boy, Jacob, was covered in bruises.
The sitter admitted to abusing Jacob, but the sitter can't be prosecuted due to a ruling in Oregon that states the victim has to be able to definitively prove that the mistreatment was intentional, which is difficult to do when the victim is a baby who can't speak.
Jacob's dad, Joshua Marbury, who is understandably irate that justice won't be served, wrote in a viral Facebook post, "Something needs to be done. NOBODY can just hit a child and more to just get away with it because the child can't verbally tell you."
"We had a confession from the abuser saying they did it. Still this person was not arrested because they had to build a case and a jury to find him guilty before they go to jail. (Side note: If I'm not mistaken, if I strike a person in the face and the cops were called I would be put in handcuffs immediately). After two months of waiting we find out that charges are dropped because my one-year-old can't tell you verbally he was abused and my son did not show he was in pain or that this person 'intentionally' did this."
"A dead body can't tell you who killed them.
