Indian American mother Purvi Patel already had become Indiana's first woman convicted of feticide, for what she said was a miscarriage. Now she's been sentenced to 20 years in prison, alarming advocates for immigrants and reproductive rights.
In a case that caught the world's attention earlier this year, a jury convicted 34-year-old Purvi Patel and sentenced her to 46 years in prison — of which she's currently serving 20. The jurors in South Bend, Indiana, found her guilty of both feticide — fatally harming her unborn child — and child neglect, leaving the child to die after birth. In filing an appeal, her new legal team says there's not enough evidence to justify that conviction, and that her charges should be reversed.
Police are still investigating Friday's attack on a Planned Parenthood in Colorado Springs, Colo., but they say Robert Dear is responsible. If that's the case, it represents just the latest example of a white male being behind a mass shooting.
