Mubashra Uddin, 20, had just given birth to a daughter and when she heard her mother coming towards the bedroom, she tossed the baby out of the window from the apartment she shared with a friend. She didn’t want her mother to know about the child, who died an hour after being dropped. She was originally charged with first degree murder.
But the ignoramus judge in the case decided she should take her family situation into account for the murder and after giving her credit for time served as she awaited trial, gave her nothing but probation. She exerted her Muslim privilege and if you don’t like it you are a racist.
Uddin dropped Baby Jane from a window in her eighth floor Chicago apartment after she had given birth on November 11, 2015, so that her parents would not find out about her pregnancy. The baby died about an hour later.
Though she was initially jailed without bond, Cook County Judge Carol Howard reduced Uddin’s bail last year to $275,000, according to the Chicago Tribune.
Uddin eventually posted bond and was released. She lived with her parents and was on electronic monitoring.
She was given credit for serving 603 days in jail and was sentenced to at least 48 months’ probation at her sentencing Thursday.
She did not tell her parents, who are Pakistani Muslim, that she became pregnant by her boyfriend because she knew they would not approve, assistant state attorney Patrick Turnock said at the time.
Uddin gave birth around 11.20pm to a full-term seven pound 11 ounce girl in a bedroom she shared with her younger sister.
When she heard her mother approach the room, Uddin dropped the girl out of the bedroom window.
The DeVry University student had only told her boyfriend and another friend that she was pregnant.
She hid the pregnancy from her family by wearing clothing that concealed the bump, according to Turnrock.
