Re "25-to-life for leaving baby in a bag to die" (Our Region, Nov. 2): Sacramento County Superior Court Judge Sharon A. Lueras said, "You don't look like your typical defendant, sitting there."
So let me ask the judge, what did you mean? What is typical?
We readers can answer that question with our own preconceived notions of what we think Judge Lueras might have been so easily referring to.
I certainly cannot be the judge of this young woman, but, I believe criminal activity comes in all kinds of "looks." Including "a frail looking [Courtney Kathleen] Addington, her red hair in childlike braids."
