How is this possible? Mother kills daughter and just gets probation...
And, how many years would a man have gotten in prison for this????
A Calgary mother will not serve any jail time for strangling her teenage daughter, a judge rules.
Aset Magomadova, who was convicted last fall of manslaughter, was instead given a suspended sentence and three years of probation.
Magomadova used a scarf to kill her troubled daughter, Aminat, 14, after a violent struggle in their southeast Calgary home in 2007.
The mother was acquitted of the original second-degree murder charge.
Crown prosecutor Mac Vomberg had asked the Court of Queen's Bench for a 12-year sentence, arguing that Magomadova abused her position of trust and authority and that her actions needed to be strongly condemned.
But Justice Sal LoVecchio, reading from his 25-page decision, said: "Showing mercy does not mean we approve of the act. It simply means sometimes a particular situation may demand a slightly different solution.
