A former Ohio highschool cheerleader, who was acquitted Thursday of killing her undesirable new child, was sentenced to probation Friday after she was convicted of burying the corpse in her household yard after weeks of concealing the being pregnant.
Brooke Skylar Richardson, 20, was discovered not responsible of aggravated homicide, involuntary homicide and youngster endangerment within the May 2017 loss of life of her new child daughter.
On Friday, a Warren County Decide ordered her to a few years probation for the lesser cost of corpse abuse.

Decide Donald Oda II known as it a “mandatory community control case” which requires at the least inserting the younger girl on probation.
“What that means Ms. Richardson is because this is a felony of the fifth degree and you have no prior criminal record and you don’t fit the other statutory criteria, the most I am required by law to place you on community control.”
He continued: “That means the maximum I can sentence you to today, even though the maximum for this offense is 12 months in prison, the maximum I can sentence you to today is to six months of local incarceration.”
Regardless of this, Oda sentenced her to a few years of “basic supervision” and seven days in a county jail, which she already had time-served for.
“Which means you’re going to be going home today,” Oda stated.
“I firmly believe Ms. Richardson, in fact, I know in my heart that if you would have made different decisions in this case, Annabell would be here today,” he stated earlier than sentencing … “I suppose that your selections earlier than delivery, throughout delivery and after present a grotesque disregard for all times.”
Prosecutors had alleged that Richardson, a highschool cheerleader, was knowledgeable by her physician in April 2017 that she was pregnant and could be giving delivery in a “matter of weeks.” The then-18-year-old grew to become extraordinarily upset and advised her physician that she couldn’t have the kid and requested that she not inform anybody.

Days later, on May 7, she gave delivery in the midst of the evening. Prosecutors say she killed the newborn and buried it within the yard by a barbeque pit, disposing of all proof.
