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.

The different solution in this case would be to fire this idiots arse off the bench.
