Danita Tutt Update
This is an update on a case involving a Texas mother with her son. A&E’s Accused covered Danita Tutt’s case. She was convicted on three counts of attempted murder, kidnapping, and aggravated assault. She also admitted to having starved her son and lying about her son’s health issues. In April of 2020, Tutt will be eligible for parole. Until then, she will be kept in jail.
Because Tutt’s minor son is being represented by her attorney and she is a single mom, the case has attracted national attention. Her attorney’s claim that her son had a mental illness influenced the jury’s decision to convict her is a strong one. The media’s portrayal of the case portrayed the young mother in a bad light. Despite this, Tutt’s family and friends are sticking by her.
The case involving Danita Tutt has been made public after the actress was found guilty of attempted murder. She was also accused of injuring her son by performing unnecessary surgeries and withholding food. She was found guilty by the court and sentenced to five years imprisonment. She is appealing the sentence. The trial is scheduled to begin in February 2019.
A jury in Tarrant County sentenced Danita Tutt to five years in prison for attempted murder and injury to a child. After 2.5 years, she will be eligible to parole. She was also placed on probation for 10 years. Tutt was convicted of lying about her son’s illness in order to influence medical authorities to perform unnecessary surgeries and prescribe unnecessary pain medications. The trial ended in a not guilty verdict on the first two counts, but not guilty on the second.
After five weeks of trial, Tutt was sentenced to five years in prison for injury to a child. She was sentenced on October 26, 2018 to five years in prison for injury to a child and 10 years probation for attempted murder. During the trial, Tutt’s defense attorney blamed the specialists who thought about the case before bringing the case. However, the jury said that the only way to keep her son and her two other children safe was to sentence her to prison.
The case is extremely complicated. The jury found that Tutt had a history involving neglect, starvation, abuse, and other forms of neglect. She also claimed that she was “overreacting” by intentionally starving Colby. Her husband was also accused of stealing her baby, lying about her symptoms and causing her to be abused by her. CPS dropped the lawsuit against her and granted her unlimited supervision.
