Md. woman sentenced for severe child abuse

PRINCE FREDERICK, MD. — An 8-year-old girl with scars on most of her body from regular beatings by the woman she used to call “Mommy” confronted her abuser in court Friday, telling her: “I do not think you will be going to heaven.”
The woman, Renee Bowman, is accused of killing the girl’s two older sisters and keeping their bodies in a freezer for months. She was sentenced Friday in Calvert County Circuit Court to 25 years in prison for the abuse of the surviving girl. Bowman, 44, pleaded guilty in September to first-degree child abuse.
She faces a separate trial on murder charges in Montgomery County, where the family lived previously and where her other daughters are believed to have been killed.
All three girls were former foster children adopted from the District of Columbia, and Bowman continued to collect subsidies for all of them from the D.C. government even after the older children were killed.
The surviving girl, who was 8 months old when Bowman became her foster mother, was found wandering around her Lusby neighborhood in a bloodstained nightshirt after escaping through a window in September 2008.
Police searched the home and found the bodies in the freezer, as well as a high-heeled shoe used to beat the youngest. Feces and urine were found in the girl’s bedroom and in a closet because she had been locked in both places, Calvert County State’s Attorney Laura L. Martin said. The child had human bite marks and shoe marks on her body, a piece of her lip was missing, and she had broken bones that improperly healed, Martin said. The girl could not read and authorities found no evidence that she had ever been to school.
The girl, who was dressed neatly in a black and white dress and came to the hearing with the therapist and her foster parents, appeared to shudder and put her head on her foster mother’s shoulder when Bowman was first led into the courtroom. But moments later she laughed loudly after her foster mother whispered something in her ear.
The girl was led out of the courtroom while Martin described the abuse. After she was brought back in, Martin asked her if she wanted to make a statement. Clutching a piece of paper, she walked to the front of the courtroom with her therapist by her side.
“You should never do things to little girls or little boys because God sees you and will put you on the liars list. I do not think you will be going to heaven,” she told Bowman in a barely audible voice. Martin later provided a copy of the statement.
“I’m happy now. I know my math. I read. I am in the first grade. It’s amazing I got that far,” she added. “I have a lot of people who love me.”
Martin said the girl made a point of reading the statement to prove she could read to Bowman, who claimed the girl couldn’t learn.
Before Judge Marjorie L. Clagett handed down the sentence, Bowman apologized to the judge and to the victim.
“I’m very remorseful. I don’t know what happened. I’m very sorry for my actions. … I wish her the best with her family and I’m proud of her,” she said. “Despite what Ms. Martin says, I do have love in my heart for her.”
Bowman claimed she tried to return the girl to the adoption agency after she realized she couldn’t handle her.
Public defender Dorothy Gardner-Hodge, in arguing for a lower sentence, said Bowman was abused as a child and in foster care from an early age. She said her mother and sister both suffer from mental illness and that Bowman suffers from chronic pain and has been treated for breast cancer.
Clagett sentenced Bowman to the maximum sentence allowed because of the horrific nature of the crime. She said she wouldn’t rule out sending her to serve her sentence at the Patuxent Institution, a psychiatric treatment facility that is part of Maryland’s corrections system. However, she said she would need more information before she did so.
Clagett said the system failed the girl, but told Bowman: “You were her mother. You were meant to protect her and nurture her, and all that happened was just the opposite.”

With Special Guests:
There are many passionate and committed women working hard to improve the lives of men and boys in the arenas of men’s health, fatherhood, boys’ education, domestic violence, divorce and separation, and the many other areas we cover regularly on our program. It is regularly observed in this post-feminist era of political correctness that the voice of a woman can often be worth that of a hundred men. This week on Dads on the Air we interview two North American women who have the courage to speak up on behalf of men and boys. Barbara Kay was a frequent contributor of op/eds, book reviews and humour pieces to the National Post, a Canadian national newspaper based in Toronto. She became a regular Comment page columnist for the newspaper in September, 2003. Her refreshingly direct, brave and honest columns have regularly covered issues of concern to men and boys. Often shunning the political correctness adopted by many of her media colleagues, Kay’s articles have been widely circulated amongst the international men’s and fathers’ movement for being genuinely sympathetic to the lived experience of so many males in the West. Some examples of her writing include
- On domestic violence, no one wants to hear the truth
- The plight of divorced dads
- The last white ribbon
- An Embattled Champion Of Male Values
- Forgetting the male victims of child abuse
- A school board’s message:Women good, men bad
- Fathers helping fathers
- For want of a father
- Disenfranchised dads
- Welcome to the matriarchy and
- A Father’s Day I’d like to see.
Here’s a short passage from The plight of divorced dads:
“Of the myriad forms of discrimination men cite, one looms over the rest: The egregious treatment meted out to fathers in the throes of contested child custody following the “no-fault” divorces most of them did not initiate or desire. My files bulge with stories of disenfranchised fathers ripped from their children’s arms and lives. They have lost their homes, their careers, fortunes, friends and reputations, often on the basis of false allegations of abuse (for which their female accusers are virtually never punished). I wouldn’t mention such anecdotal evidence, if the anguish in these testimonials didn’t jibe with objective data confirming the shameful gender bias that dominates the family law system.
“About half of all marriages end in divorce. Women are twice as likely to initiate a divorce as men, largely because they can be fairly sure they’ll end up with control of the children. Where shared parenting is the default template, divorce rates plummet. Men are six times as likely as women to commit suicide within the first two years after a separation: That they kill themselves from despair rather than their ex-wives for revenge is, ironically, a tragically eloquent rebuttal to the feminist credo that men are inherently dangerous to women. Although 25% of women make more money than their spouses, 97% of support payers are men (even in cases of shared parenting). Mobility decisions favour women: The psychological comfort to a Vancouver mother of moving near her Toronto-based family will be privileged over the psychological devastation the virtual loss of his children causes the Vancouver-bound father.
“Misandry in family law begins with an ideology that views children as the property of women, even though many peer-reviewed studies show children want and need both parents, and no studies show sole parenting by a mother serves children’s best interests. This ideology is instilled in judges during training sessions featuring feminism-driven materials, and subsequently often plays out as unaccountable kangaroo courts. The result is that an adversarial mother who initiates a divorce against the will of the father – however indifferent her parenting skills, however superb his and even if the children spend their days with nannies or day care workers – pretty well has a lock on sole custody of the children. If she denies rightful access to the father, she will never be punished at all. Conversely, if he withholds money, he will be criminalized: His picture as a “deadbeat dad” may appear on government-sanctioned Internet sites, and if he goes to jail, as is likely, he will serve a longer sentence than cocaine dealers.”
The US Boys and Schools program is dedicated to improving the lives and futures of boys. Their outreach efforts focus on raising public awareness regarding issues related to boys’ health and achievement. They offer tools and resources that can help make a change in boys’ lives. The Boys and Schools program is a project of the Men’s Health Network, a non-profit educational organization committed to improving the health and well-being of men and boys. Malia Blom is the director of the Boys and Schools program, who lives and works in Alexandria, Virginia, with her husband James, and her two sons, Andy and Magnus. Blom gave an excellent presentation at last year’s Boys and the Boy Crisis conference in Washington DC, and it will be a pleasure to have her on Dads on the Air to talk about the crisis facing boys and young men in the US education system, and the excellent strategies being supported by Boys and Schools. Some of the examples of the strategies supported by the Boys and Schools program include:
- More research regarding boys’ developmental needs and learning styles, and greater public awareness of these differences
- Early intervention as a means to develop literacy skills and a positive attitude about school
- Mentoring, and greater parental and community involvement.
- More flexibility for educators in trying different techniques to reach boys
- Better efforts to meet the mental health needs of boys
- Educating policy makers about the need for specialized programs to boost boys’ educational outcomes
- Creating a culture of support for boys.
Mothers in Heat: Genise Schu
Schu faces counts of showing pornography to a minor, oral copulation of a minor under the age of 14, lewd act with a child under 14, sexual intercourse with a person under 18 years old, and oral copulation of a minor under the age of 18.
The relationship began when the alleged victim was 13 years old and would spend the night at the home of one of his classmates, her son. At some point, allegedly, she showed him pornography while others were sleeping, and eventually orally copulated the boy and had sexual intercourse at least twice.
Since then the two have allegedly had consensual sex hundreds of times during the relationship, according to a declaration from Santa Barbara police officer Corina Terrence.
According to Officer Terrence, Schu confessed to the sexual relationship.

September 19th 2009
A Woodward, Oklahoma couple are accused of sexually assaulting two young girls and making them pose for sexually explicit photographs.
Prosecutors say there may be more victims.
The charges are in addition to those filed against them in July. The two already face complaints of first-degree rape, lewd molestation and procuring a minor to participate in child pornography.
The Freerksens on Friday were in the Woodward County jail. Their bail is set at $200,000 each.
The investigation is ongoing.
Assistant District Attorney Danny Lohmann said investigators found numerous sexually graphic photographs featuring several different girls on the Freerksens’ digital camera. He said all the girls have not been identified, and more criminal charges against the couple are possible.
Lohmann said the photographs were among the most unsettling pictures he’s seen.
“Let me put it this way — they’re worse than bad,” Lohmann said.
The investigation was sparked by an 11-year-old girl who told police the Freerksens made her drink orange juice spiked with vodka and molested her during an overnight stay in their home.
They took photographs of the sex acts, according to court records.
Authorities obtained a search warrant in July and seized the Freerksens’ computer and digital camera. On the camera, they found sexually explicit photographs of a 15-year-old girl and Dean Freerksen, according to court records.
Investigators recently identified the teenager, who claims she was sexually assaulted by the couple in June, court records state.
Dean Leroy Freerksen III has been convicted of child stealing and assault and battery with a dangerous weapon, records show.
