A Grand Rapids woman whose toddler ate crack cocaine three years ago was sentenced to prison last week for enticing a girl, 15, to a hotel where a man waited to have sex with her. The teen was unwilling.
Stacy Naomie Gatlin received six to 15 years for enticing a female under 16 for immoral purposes, reports MLive. Gatlin allegedly took the girl’s cell phone, leaving the victim alone in the room with the man, who was also charged with accosting a child for immoral purposes.
Gatlin, 24, already has quite a record. She was convicted in 2013 of second-degree child abuse and contributing to the delinquency of a minor after her 14-month-old toddler ingested crack cocaine from the floor.
“‘M’ is for the many things she gave me ...” the song “Mother” goes.
Kent County Circuit Court Judge Mark Trusock told Gatlin her eight past jail sentences hadn’t “had an impact on you.”
Nor have the eight sentences I’ve written, if you’re still reading.
