Kelli Stapleton attempted premediated murder of her Autistic Child by locking her child in a van with the windows up and lighting two charcoal grills inside the van. The police foiled the attempt however Issy likely suffered brain damage. We ask that the United States Department of Justice prosecute this under the Matthew Shepard and James Byrd Jr. Hate Crimes Prevention Act of 2009 as the crime clearly targeted Issy due to her disability.
I ask that Kelli Stapleton be charged federally under the Matthew Shepard and James Byrd Jr. Hate Crimes Prevention Act of 2009 which allows the federal government to prosecute as a hate crime acts of violence when “the crime was committed because of the actual or perceived religion, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity, or disability of any person.” This case clearly meats the defintion of this case.
