Lisa Hench: Serial Abuser of Affluent Neighborhood Babies Gets Just 2 Years

|Lisa Hench would befriend other moms, then secretly scratch and claw their babies.|
The problem was that she's a weirdo. She would ask to hold the other moms' babies. Then, when she was out of eyesight, she would scratch the children from head head to toe, leaving marks and clawing them enough to make them cry.
The babies, of course, were unable to say anything about her weirdness. Which allowed the 45-year-old Hench to abuse 8 kids -- ages 3 to 19 months -- before she was caught.
She never explained why she did it. There's likely no explanation for her behavior anyway. She pleaded guilty in December to eight misdemeanor counts of corporal injury on a child, which allowed her to avoid four felonies.
And because they were only misdemeanors, she was sentenced to just two years, where she'll be allowed to leave jail during the day and return at night. She'll also have to continue getting mental health treatment, and she'll face two years of probation once she's released.
Perhaps her affluence allowed her to skate. Perhaps she's just too loony for prison. But for a serial baby predator, that's an awfully light sentence.
