Nanny Receives Mere Probation For Attempted Child Hanging, Defense Cites Mental Illness

She was given 10 years probation but no prison sentence.

In the refugee-welcoming state of Minnesota, a Ukrainian woman was given probation after attempting to hang a 16-month-old child.

Throughout the nation, liberal legislators and judges continually pardon criminals unworthy of just sentencing. In their other attempts to encourage further immigration to the United States, they also appear to be more lenient on non-Americans, or at least this can be suspected regarding the case in Minnesota after a nanny embarked on a violent rampage, nearly killing a child by means of hanging from a noose.

After the Ukrainian daycare worker pled guilty to the attempted homicide, the judge outrageously agreed with the defense that the sick and violent woman was ‘low risk’ and gave her probation instead of jail time. Unfortunately, such an outcome is unsurprising coming from a liberal state serving as a land of refugees.

In November 2016, parents Claire Booth and Jennifer Booth entrusted Nataliia Karia, 43, from Ukraine, to care for their 16-month-old boy at her home-based daycare business in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

However, Karia proved to not only be an unfit caretaker but also an attempted murderer.

According to reports, on November 18, Karia underwent a claimed mental episode, almost killing a toddler.

When another parent, Joseph Sabir, went to drop his daughter off with Karia that morning, the nanny was reported to have said that “she had ‘done something bad.’”

Sabir subsequently heard a child’s cries originating from Karia’s basement to which he immediately sought the cause.

Mr. Sabir found the Booth’s boy hanging “by the neck with a homemade noose in [Karia’s] basement.” She had made the noose out of a pair “of girls’ tights tied to an overhead pipe.”

Horrified, he freed the child and “ran out of the house.”

Aggravating the situation even further, Karia too fled the home and risked further loss of life. On her rampage, she reportedly hit “a pedestrian, another driver, and a bicyclist” “with her minivan before attempting suicide” from a freeway overpass.

Thankfully, the child and the three individuals all survived the encounter; however, the cyclist, Jacob Carrigan, nearly had to have his leg amputated from his injuries, and the driver Karia hit was said to be pregnant.

On Monday, Karia faced Judge Jay Quam at the Hennepin County District Court, pleading “guilty to attempted murder and criminal vehicular operation.” She further begged the judge for probation instead of jail time, ridiculously saying, “Please help me back to my [own] children.”

Since the ordeal, her minor children, “ages two, seven, and ten” had rightfully been removed from Karia’s care.

Her entire plea and testimony were in Russian, requiring a translator despite that Karia has been in the United States since 2006.

Karia’s legal defense continued fighting for probation, citing abuse from her husband as being the factor in driving her to the apparent mental breakdown.

Such was proven true in court through violent audio recordings, and Karia continued to insist that her husband had “prevented her from getting medical attention” for her issues.

Yet she further tried to blame her husband while also saying “I don’t want to push this terrible crime onto my husband.”

However, assistant county attorney Christina Warren compellingly argued that probation was not appropriate and that mental illness was no excuse for not incarcerating Karia, especially considering that “prosecutors initially pushed for a 13-year prison sentence.”

Warren further added that “this case is about a little boy who very well could have taken his last breath in that basement.”

Regarding the mental illness claims, Warren said “the Department of Corrections is incredibly well equipped to handle the needs of the mentally ill,” should such be the case.

However, Judge Quam horrendously sided with Karia, giving her 10 years probation and “credit for 20 months in jail,” along with house arrest and “court-ordered mental treatment.”

Should she violate probation, Karia could face up to 15 years in prison.

Quam further defended Karia, calling the series of incidents “the perfect storm of factors unlikely to be ever repeated,” continuing that Karia is a ‘low risk’ threat.

As of Monday, she was further outrageously said to “leave jail no later than Tuesday,” according to defense attorney Brockton Hunter.

Naturally, the child’s parents were horrified at Karia even being considered worthy of probation.

While one may think that Sabir, the father who located the hung child, would also be an advocate for the little boy, he, too, sided with the deranged woman.

In a hearing in May, Sabir sickeningly reported not feeling that Karia “poses a risk to the public or her children,” saying that Karia “was not acting herself” on the November day in question.

However, the fact remains that Karia did, in fact, conduct herself is a reckless and abusive manner that almost killed a toddler. She also did not plead insanity in court but instead admitted to her crimes.

Unfortunately, the liberal judge sided with Karia, as she now poses a threat to herself, others, and most importantly, other children.

While it was not reported whether or not Karia came to the United States on refugee status, it is simply a fact that “Minnesota has the highest number of refugees per capita nationwide,” as reported in January.

Of course, the attempted murder could have been done by a U.S. citizen, refugee, or illegal immigrant alike; however, it raises further awareness regarding the potential harm that immigrants pose on the American judicial system.

In this case, an immigrant was nonetheless unrightfully given leniency, as the judge appeared to have pitied Karia so that she could continue pursuing the American dream regardless of her danger.
