Whatever happened to the values of “you do the crimes, you do the times”, or “TAKE RESPONSIBILITIES for YOUR OWN bad behaviors”??? Apparently, this woman had missed out on that “memo”, from NBCNEWS.com, copyrighted on Associated Press…
A woman admitted on Wednesday that she helped two of her children conceal evidence of a gang-related double slaying that occurred at her home, where the bodies were buried in a yard.
Arnetta Welch pleaded guilty to hindering apprehension, Camden County prosecutors said. The 42-year-old is expected to get a two-year probation term when she’s sentenced in March.
Welch bought cleaning supplies and helped with the removal of evidence following the February 2010 killings of Michael Hawkins and his girlfriend, Muriah Huff, prosecutors said. The couple was tortured, beaten, shot and buried in the backyard of Welch’s Camden home, prosecutors have said.
The bodies of Hawkins, of Mount Holly, and Huff, of Cinnaminson, weren’t discovered for three days.
Hawkins, 23, was killed over a gang dispute and a stolen bottle of liquor, authorities say. Huff, 18, had accompanied Hawkins to the home and was killed to prevent her from identifying the attackers, they say.
Welch’s children, 19-year-old Shatara Carter and 24-year-old Dennis Welch, were among 10 defendants who have been convicted or pleaded guilty for their roles in the slayings.
Dennis Welch pleaded guilty to aggravated manslaughter in 2013 and was sentenced to 25 years in prison. Carter, who was 14 at the time of the killings, pleaded guilty as an adult to aggravated manslaughter last year and was sentenced to 22 years in prison
So in the end, who, did you help out, mom??? Did you help your son dodge HIS punishment for the crimes he’d committed? Uh, HECK NO, and now, you’d implicated yourself too, because you attempted to cover HIS ass, and, was it worth it? And, what sort of a value, would YOU be teaching your “of age”, ADULT son? Oh, I know, my mama will wipe up my FUCKED up mess FOR me, which means that I will NEVER need to STEP up, and take the responsibilities for my own behaviors, yay me!!! Are you FUCKING (and don’t pardon me this time!!!) shitting me here???
