Children Are Allowed To Be Murdered By Sadistic Parents in the United State & Penalties Have Recently Been REDUCED
Oregon’s only woman on death row resentenced to life in prison for killing daughter
The only woman on death row in Oregon was resentenced to life imprisonment without the possibility of parole last week.
Angela McAnulty of Eugene, now 51, was sentenced to death in February 2011 after pleading guilty to the aggravated murder of her 15-year-old daughter Jeanette Maples.
In 2009, Maples was found lifeless in a Eugene home, weighing 50 pounds, dehydrated and with more than 100 injuries. The emergency room physician called it the worst case of child abuse they had ever seen.
However, as a result of years of appeals from McAnulty arguing her lawyers erred in representing her, and 2019 legislation reducing the penalty for those “who murder children through intentional maiming and torture,” McAnulty is no longer on death row.
Lane County District Attorney Patty Perlow announced the development Monday afternoon.
“In summary, the settlement agreement provides that the sentence of death is vacated, and Angela McAnulty is sentenced to life imprisonment without the possibility of parole,” Perlow said in a statement. “Both parties dismiss their appeals in the Oregon Court of Appeals and Angela McAnulty agrees ‘she will never attempt to challenge in any court her aggravated murder conviction or the stipulated true-life sentence.’ ”
The original death sentence was automatically reviewed by the Oregon Supreme Court on appeal in 2014 to determine whether there were any errors in the process, but it upheld the conviction in October 2014. The United States Supreme Court declined to review the case the following year.
In 2016, new attorneys filed a petition for post-conviction relief in Washington County, claiming her first attorneys did not adequately represent her.
This led to a back and forth when a judge decided after a 12-day trial in 2018 that McAnulty’s lawyers didn’t adequately represent her. The judge said her guilty plea should be vacated and the case reprosecuted from the beginning.
Oregon’s Department of Justice in 2019 appealed and challenged that judge’s order and McAnulty’s laywers filed a cross-appeal.
The case took another turn after the 2019 Oregon Legislative Session when SB 1013 passed. It reduced the potential penalties for people who murder children through intentional torture. The new legislation was retroactive.
Both parties met July 29 in Washington County Circuit Court in Hillsboro to finalize an agreement between prosecution and McAnulty to resentence her to life imprisonment without the possibility of parole — the new maximum sentence for the crime under the 2019 law.
McAnulty was the first and only woman sentenced to death in Oregon since voters restored capital punishment in 1984.
Richard McAnulty, Jeanette’s stepfather, pleaded guilty to murder by abuse in April 2011 and was sentenced to life imprisonment with no possibility of parole before at least 25 years in prison. He did not appeal his sentence, according to Perlow.

Comment: This is the way it is when BABY RAPERS RUN YOUR GOV’T. Call it the Lavender Left, Gay Mafia, Sadistic Pedophile Gov’t. The only ones with rights seem to be BABY RAPERS. Welcome to the Satanist owned USA. The mother allegedly got involved with Drugs at a young age when getting involved with a Carnival worker. She may’ve stayed involved with drugs and maybe was a drug addict.
Comment: RIP Jeanette. I hope your mother is incarcerated until she dies. I am so so sorry for the way you wer treated while alive. For sure you are in heaven being loved at last.
