As of yesterday, Prof. Annelise Barron is a convicted felon. Apparently her plea was accepted and she was sentenced to time served because she's out of Elmwood jail and back on the street. A court trial regarding child custody is scheduled in two weeks.Not sure, but he is probably the same reader who posted some more details in a comment a couple of months ago.
I don't know what to make of this story, except to conclude that an otherwise smart and respected mom can go nuts with paranoid delusions and possessiveness. Our society is very deferential to a crazy mom who is arguably acting out on maternal instincts, but there are some limits to which she can take the law into her own hands.
