Jurema Laboy Padilla | Attempted Murder
Attempted Bathtub Drowning of Her Own Son
[dropcap]I[/dropcap]f an abusive person wanted to drown a nine month old child there would be no need for a struggle. All you would have to do is fill a bathtub with water, place the child in the tub and leave him be. There would be no signs of bruising or struggle with the perpetrator. This is exactly what Jurema Laboy Padilla did. I reported this to the police and all I had was my testimony of what I witnessed. There was no time to take a video. There was only time to intervene and save my son. There were no bruises and I was the only witness. My other son was also in the tub but he was only 22 months old. even if he could remember the incident there is no way he could understand what his mother was trying to do to his brother. When I intervened Laboy’s first reaction was to try and blame my 22 month old son and make it seem like he was playing rough with his brother. I stepped in to pick up my son and she then stepped in front of me to pick him up. When he was lifted from the tub his skin was red all over an he was choking and spitting up a large amount of water.
The purpose of this website, the information provided and “The Adventures of Highwaychild” documentary is to present evidence of crimes and injustices committed against the children and families mentioned. It is the hope of Hodos Pictures, LLC that shedding light on these facts would lead to legal justice for these innocent children. This case is about crimes committed against innocent children and not about a marital dispute. It also important to note that mothers, pastors, police officers, judges, lawyers and social services employees have in fact committed crimes in the past and have been prosecuted and incarcerated for their crimes. There are women’s prisons and there is a significant population of ex-pastors, ex-police officers, ex-attorneys, ex-judges and ex-government employees in prison. Holding a position of authority comes with a higher level of responsibility and accountability.
From everyone who has been given much, much will be demanded; and from the one who has been entrusted with much, much more will be asked.

But if you show favoritism, you sin and are convicted by the law as lawbreakers.
James 2:9, NIV
