One day before Judge Howard Zwelling is set to announce his decision on her early release, Jennifer Bryant’s attorney Aaron Miller files a memorandum in response to the state’s memorandum filed last week.
Bryant served seven months of a three-year sentence on involuntary manslaughter, child endangering and abuse of a corpse charges. She was convicted last year of killing her newborn baby and placing him in a trash bin outside her Muskingum College apartment.
Bryant’s attorney said in his memorandum Monday that the state appears to have shifted positions on his client’s sentence, a point refuted by Muskingum County Prosecutor Mike Haddox. Haddox says the state is and has been satisfied with Bryant’s three-year sentence…their position has not changed.
However Haddox says the state feels that Bryant has not taken full responsibility for her actions…that’s why the state has recommended that Bryant fulfill her full sentence. Judge Zwelling will announce his decision Tuesday.
