Brooklyn mom who tossed newborn baby down garbage shoot gets probation

Laquasia Wright,  a 19-year-old Brooklyn girl, was allowed to plead guilty in endangering the welfare of a child after she threw her baby down her 8th floor garbage chute. She will receive five years probation if she completes her GED and finds an occupation, as long as its outside of the health care industry. The New York Daily News reports that Wright will be sentenced to 2 1/2 to 7 years in jail if she violates the conditions of her plea.

Brooklyn teenager who dumped her newborn down a garbage chute must find a job as part of a no-jail plea deal — but a judge says she’s looking in all the wrong places.

Laquasia Wright, 19, tossed the baby boy from the eighth floor of a Fort Greene housing project on May 2011 — but he miraculously survived for 12 hours in a jammed trash compactor.

In a deal personally approved by District Attorney Charles Hynes, prosecutors said, she was allowed to plead to endangering the welfare of a child and receive five years probation if she completes her GED and finds a job.

Her chosen career path? Home health aide, she told Brooklyn Supreme Court Justice Patricia DiMango Wednesday.
