Ore. mother gets probation in home circumcision



Published: Tue, August 16, 2011 @ 11:24 a.m.

PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — An Oregon woman who tried to circumcise her 3-month-old son at home after reading the Old Testament and watching YouTube videos has been sentenced to five years of probation.

Keemonta Peterson pleaded guilty to first-degree criminal mistreatment. The 30-year-old Portland woman must also undergo mental health treatment.

Peterson called 911 and the boy was rushed to a hospital last October after her botched effort left the infant bleeding uncontrollably and in intense pain. A prosecutor says he has fully recovered.

The Oregonian reports the boy and his three siblings are in the state’s care, though Peterson can see them under supervision.

Multnomah County Circuit Judge Eric Bergstrom told Peterson on Monday that “the reality is you love your children and had absolutely no intent to harm your child.”

Ever notice how the "mentally ill" turn to the bible? Kinda makes you wonder, huh? It's not God that I have a problem with.. it's his followers!

I doubled over in pseudo pain reading this. What is wrong with these idiots from Oregon? I've never met ANYONE from Oregon who was right in the head. They have these things EVEN in oregon called DOCTORS! Take him to one if you want him circumcised. I think they should cut her like that in the same general area without anything for pain. What is this kid gonna tell his first girlfriend the first time? Imagine how bad his sex life is going to be. Granted, he was only 3 months old but I'm sure it'll have some life long effects. I think she should lose all her kids for the rest of her life and she should do more than probation. That's a bunch of crap! She should be charged with gross sexual mutilation and spend a hefty prison sentence and be required to register as a sex offender.
