Brooke Skylar Richardson Says She’s Sorry She Can Be Selfish, Found Not Guilty Of Murdering Her Newborn Daughter (Plus, Here’s What Baby Daddy’s Family Has To Say)

Gross abuse of a corpse is a felony, and the sentence is a maximum of one year in jail. However, Brooke appears to have gotten off easy.

At her sentencing hearing, Brooke addressed the judge and the rest of the courtroom and had this to say:

“I just wanted to say how sorry I was. I can sometimes be selfish, but I would like to think that I’ve become better in the knowledge that I’ve upset everyone and hurt so many people with what I’ve done. And I’m forever sorry.”

Judge Donald Oda sentenced Brooke to just 7 days in jail and 3 years of probation, but since she has already served time, he gave her credit for that and she walked free after her trial.
