According to the court documents, the 39-year-old husband, Mas0n, who attempted to kill his own unborn baby seven different times, was sentenced to 6 months in prison, in addition to 10 years of probation as part of a plea deal. Prosecutors said the husband and father reportedly tried to induce his seven month pregnant wife, Catherine, to have an ab0rtion while having an affair with another woman.
According to the court documents, the 39-year-old man reportedly made several attempts to induce his pregnant wife to have an abortion, leaving her ill and their third baby born 10 weeks prematureIy. According to the court documents, the child now suffers from deveIopmental delays and receives therapy eight times per week. Prosecutors said that Mason’s attempts to drug his wife came in the midst of the husband cheating and having an affair with another woman.
During that time, Mason reportedly told his then pregnant wife he wanted to split up. Catherine reportedly told prosecutors her husband feared looking bad if she gave birth. Catherine also appeared during the sentencing, where she condemned the judge sentence: “I do not believe that 6 months is justice for attempting to kill your child seven separate times.’ According to the mother, she reportedly gave birth to their daughter 10 weeks premature, causing the newborn to spend months eating through a feeding tube and was left with learning and development difficulties.
According to the court documents, the 39-year-old husband was filmed on one occasion putting the abortion-inducing drug into a glass of juice which he then encouraged his pregnant wife to drink. Catherine also told authorities that her husband made repeated attempts to secretly administer it to her. Six of those samples that she saved were tested in a lab and at least two were shown to contain msoprostoI.
