I know she did a HORRIBLE thing but 99 years?

I'm really furious over this.

Houston mother Katherine Nadal has been sentenced to 99 years for mutilating her infant son by way of cutting off his genitals with ab "unknown sharp instrument" two years ago. Katherine claims that the family dog was the one responsible for the mutilation of her son, who was 5 weeks old at the time. Authorities say Nadal tested positive for cocaine, methadone and Xanax after the attack.

Her son's severed genitals were never found.

The infants aunt, Patches DeShazo who has custody of the now 2-year-old boy, gave the following victims impact statement:
"I am thankful by time you are eligible for parole you will be beyond childbearing years. It makes me crazy to this very day to hear you say I did not hurt him," DeShazo said as she read her statement.
For mutilating her nephew in such a manner I really cannot blame her for being thankful Nadal will more than likely never have another child.

This boy will have to go through years of surgeries and therapy but there is almost no way that he will be able to reconcile the kind of treatment that he will receive throughout his life thanks to what his mother did to him. There is no doubt that he will be ridiculed by other boys in the locker room. There is no doubt that he will be haunted by the thoughts of wondering why he is not like other boys. There is no doubt that he will probably suffer from all sorts of troubles in the sexual and romantic realms when the time comes that he wishes to be sexually active.

And while 99 years is a long sentence she will be eligible for parole in 30 years.
