chumboobler: I don`t think this lady meant any harm. She should clearly not be responsible for the lives of any children but she is clearly crazy. Hoarders are crazy. They are. I don`t think a hoarder should not be held responsible for their actions, I think they should. The judge can use his latitude as a judge and give her a suspended sentence and loss of custody of her kids. Mental illness is not a crime. Sometimes things mentally ill people do are crimes. If there is evidence of prior mental illness before the crime and not just `My client committed a crime your honor, and now these well paid shrinks say he is insane`, it should be taken into account.Here is a little known fact.... Most folks that commit crimes are mentally ill. Not crazy. Not, I don`t know right from wrong.... Just ill and off balance. If we fix that.... We fix prison overpopulation, lots of violent crimes, many robberies, lots of shoplifting, many cases of child abuse and the list goes on...
