Mom Fights For Stricter Abuse Law, Bill Introduced
MEDWAY -- A mother who thought she would lose her baby eight years ago, is still fighting her and is trying to bring justice to other families who have suffered at the hands of abusers.
The afternoon is Randi Shepherd's favorite part of the day, when she picks up her Destiny from school. At home, the eight year old loves to play and be silly; and you can hear and see a fire within because Destiny's a fighter.
"I was told she would never be able to function, walk, talk or do anything," explained Randi. But Destiny has defied all odds, after she was severely shaken as a baby at the hands of Randi's boyfriend at the time, Terrance King. He's nearly served his entire sentence of eight years, and gets out later this year.
"He gets to get out and live and gets to do things without thought or consideration when Destiny can't. She has to pay the consequence for a crime she never committed; and he gets to walk away, it's not fair," Randy said, as she held her daughter tight.
So Randi is trying to toughen the penalty for abusers. For those who cause permanent harm to someone, they would serve up to another ten years. It's called Destiny's law, and was introduced at the state house Wednesday.
"It gives one) justice to the next family and two) they'll be in prison for a lot longer than eight years. When I'm having a bad day all I have to do is look at her face and everything goes away. I fight for this law for her and for other children."
Randi's spread the message about Destiny's law through electronic billboards across the Miami Valley, and through the Facebook page, Destiny's Law. She and Destiny go to Columbus to talk directly to lawmakers Wednesday, January 22, 2013.
