Only 20 years? You've got to be shitting me

A Louisiana mother and father who neglected their disabled adult daughter to the point that she “melted” into the family’s couch were sentenced to spend the next 20 years in prison on Wednesday.

Lacey Ellen Fletcher, 36, could not move. Living in nearly complete paralysis with a condition referred to as “locked-in” syndrome, she relied entirely on the care and attention of her parents.

On Jan. 3, 2022, Lacey Fletcher was found dead and sunk into a 1960s-style couch at home in Slaughter — a tiny town of fewer than 100 residents located roughly 40 minutes dorth of Baton Rouge. She was covered in feces, emaciated, her body riven with ulcers. A human-sized hole was worn down into the couch where she sat — and relieved herself — for several years, according to East and West Feliciana Parish District Attorney Sam D’Aquilla.

  2. I’m sure everyone agrees with the sentence that should be imposed. And done slowly.

  3. I was trying to think of something funny to say, but no... That is just too fucking disturbing. The suffering must have been incredible. Very sad. Those people need to punished.

  4. Oh shit! I lived there for 4 years, it’s just North of Zachary, LA. Went to school with Sam D’Aquilla.

  5. I’m a doctor. Disabled have been pushed out of state facilities where abuses occurred to group homes or homes where abuses occur but are not reported. Result? Reduction in reported abuses! And cost.

  6. Many in our world today are totally wasting good air. Too much crazy crap going on to worry about these demons. Just do them and move on.
