An Oswego County man plead guilty in a horrific case of child abuse in Oswego County. 24-year-old Shawn Whaley took a plea deal at the last minute and will serve 2 to 7 years in prison. He admitted that he struck a 10-year-old girl with a screwdriver, dragged her behind a car and even forced fed her hot sauce while her mouth was covered with duct tape.
Whaley, along with three others are accused in the case of child torture. Brandy Shaver and Leslieann Raeder have already taken plea deals while prosecutors continue to prepare to take their case against Gary Bubis to trial.
PAT'S TAKE: 2 to 7 years. Really? That's it? Look, I get he took a plea deal but the idea of him being out of jail in a couple of years is disgusting. Even 7 years isn't enough. He could have killed her. If this were my daughter I can't imagine how I'd react to this "human being" being given that short sentence.
This Friday, we hope you will stand with us to end domestic and sexual violence at the Vera House White Ribbon Campaign Walk. The White Ribbon Campaign is led by men and encourages all members of the community to join them in their efforts. This male leadership helps to acknowledge the important contributions men have made in ending violence against women and invites others to take a role.
