Chance Kracke has been sentenced to 10 years in prison for his drug-fueled decision.
This is just disturbing! A daddy put his seven-month-old baby son in a freezer and shut the door after he had smoked methamphetamine that day with his wife! Poor baby! 25-year-old Arizona resident Chance Kracke says that he placed the baby in the freezer last August because he thought the kitchen floor was too messy for the infant to sit on. The baby was in there for a few minutes while Chance was busy cooking food. Eventually he heard the baby crying and plucked him from the freezer. Good thing he came to his senses.
Luckily the baby was not harmed badly. He suffered a cut and a bump on his forehead. It’s believed that the baby hit his head on the freezer door. The baby’s grandmother is the one who called the police after getting concerned about the size of the bump.
When police arrived at the apartment, they found out that Chance and his wife Leanne Kracke had been smoking meth every day for the past month and a half, and had even smoked the very day of the incident.
The apartment was also completely trashed. Broken glass and cockroaches were everywhere and it smelled of urine and feces. Alcohol and sharp objects were also lying around within reach of the children. How horrifying!
Chance pleaded guilty to two counts of child abuse and was sentenced to 10 years in prison and life probation by the Maricopa County Superior Court.
Leanne, 26, also pleaded guilty to two charges of child abuse and a count of possession of drug paraphernalia. She was sentenced to probation for life.
HollyMoms, should these parents ever get back custody of their kid?
