The long sad saga of the prosecution of Ana Cardona, the mother of a three year old boy named Lazaro Figueroa, has come, finally, to a conclusion with the 3rd DCA affirmance of her conviction here.
The case began in 1990 with the discovery of Figueroa's body, the child wearing a lollipops t-shirt. Three trials later her conviction and sentence to life in prison was upheld.
No snappy comments or snide analysis. Just a moment reflecting on the life of an innocent child lost to the foolish stupidity and criminal brutality of people who had no business being responsible for a child. May he rest in peace, robbed of a life he deserved to live.
