Dealing with a severely injured or dying child is very difficult and tragic. Parents typically use up their financial and emotional resources to do everything possible for their injured and / or dying child. Unfortunately, some people play off of the emotions of others and scam unsuspecting good citizens and friends for that matter out of money. In Cleveland, Ohio, Amanda Zolnowski was recently sentenced to 20 to 30 days in jail, 3 years of community control, and 200 hours of community service for defrauding others out of money for her supposedly ill child. Apparently, Ms. Zolnowski made up the fact that her daughter had leukemia to get sympathy and money from her friends, co-workers, and fellow students at Raphael’s School of Beauty. Police became involved when people became suspicious of the situation. This crime should be treated like others with imprisonment and post prison terms and conditions. See Woman Goes to Jail for Dying Child Scam. Ms. Zolnowski made up a tragedy. The real tragedies are out there and parents are dealing with them every day. If a child is injured or dies as a result of another person’s negligence or inattention, medical malpractice, or a product defect, it is helpful to have the representation of a Child Injury Lawyer.
