Mother Of Newborn Baby Thrown From High-Rise Window Gets Probation

In a very surprising development, Mubashra Uddin, the mother of a newborn girl who was thrown from a high-rise window in November 2015, was sentenced to four years probation this month by Judge Carol Howard.

The baby was found on the ground outside of 850 West Eastwood with severe injuries. She passed away at Weiss Hospital, just a block away.

Ms. Uddin pleaded guilty to involuntary manslaughter of a family member. All other charges against her were dropped.  You can read more about this development at CWB Chicago and in the Tribune.

We can't stress enough that Illinois has a Safe Haven Law, where newborns up to 30 days old can be turned in to hospitals, police stations, or fire stations, no questions asked. As long as the baby is uninjured, the parents can walk away, knowing their baby will be in safe hands.

  1. This is the same judge that greatly reduced the sentence of an area woman who left her young child unattended and consequently died.
