She only got Child Endangerment?! People get child Endangerment for being irresponsible, not literally trying to kill a child.

Stories like this make it easy to tell when you've been watching too many cop shows. Mom tied up the kid, but mom is also tied up and the house was set on fire. The butler did it! No, was probably a psychopath ex husband or boyfriend.

child endangerment? well guess I'll go stab some folk on the street and as long as they don't they don't die I'll argue it wasn't "attempted murder" it was just "endangerment"
