Saying he was amazed by the horror 2-year-old Joselin Hernandez suffered in her short life, a Ventura County judge sentenced her mother to 11 years in state prison Monday. Gabriela Hernandez wept after the judge detailed her daughter's abuse and told the 23-year-old he could not understand why she failed to stop her husband from beating the toddler to death. "It brings you to tears," Superior Court Judge Edward F. Brodie told the attorneys. "Her daughter had absolutely no one left to turn to.

The "battered woman" defense could prove to be a legal minefield if Gabriela and Rogelio Hernandez go on trial together in the slaying of their 2-year-old daughter, lawyers argued Monday.

Her offer was refused. Flores was one of two witnesses to testify at a hearing Thursday to determine whether Joselin's 18-year-old parents, Gabriela and Rogelio Hernandez, should stand trial for murder.

Re "Oxnard Parents Get Long Terms in Child's Death," Feb. 28. Judge James Cloninger made a serious error of judgment in not allowing the trial of Gabriela Hernandez to be heard separately, given all we know about active versus passive abusers and the transracial, cross-cultural aspects of child abuse. While both of Joselin's parents must take full responsibility for their actions or inaction, so must the public employees and agencies that played a role in little Joselin's demise.

Ventura County prosecutors have decided to retry an Oxnard mother for murder after her prior conviction for the 1996 beating death of her 2-year-old daughter was overturned on appeal. An appellate court last week found the judge who presided over 22-year-old Gabriela Hernandez's trial erred when he barred testimony from experts who concluded she was suffering from battered women's syndrome.

Six months after her conviction in the beating death of her 2-year-old daughter was overturned, Gabriela Hernandez is preparing for a new trial and a new defense. Unlike the first trial, Hernandez's attorneys will argue that she was a battered woman so paralyzed by fear that she could not stop her husband Rogelio from killing their daughter, Joselin. Hernandez's second trial will be closely watched.

Joselyn Hernandez died very young, after enduring more injuries in her two years than most adults suffer in their entire lives. Today, her parents go on trial to face charges that her father beat the little Oxnard girl, burned her, twisted her legs until they broke, and eventually killed her--and that her mother let him.
