Almost exactly two years ago (read more here), Billy Bob Thornton‘s estranged daughter, Amanda Brumfield, was arrested and charged in connection with the death of a 1-year old child she was babysitting. She was convicted on Friday. People reports:
The estranged daughter of Billy Bob Thornton had been convicted of aggravated manslaughter in the death of a friend’s baby daughter, but was found not guilty of first-degree murder. The verdict was handed down last Friday to Amanda Brumfield, 32, in the same Orlando, Fla., courthouse where Casey Anthony is being tried for the murder of her daughter, the Orlando Sentinel reports. Brumfield had claimed the death of 1-year-old Olivia Madison Garcia, while in her care as a babysitter one night in October 2008, was an accident – and that she had simply fallen a short distance out of a playpen. Prosecutors said such a fall would not account for the three-and-a-half inch fracture found on the girl’s skull and the bleeding and swelling on her brain.
Well, while she’s in prison, she might want to take some correspondence courses or learn a trade, because I think the babysitting world might be closed for her. People can be so judgmental and freak out when they read “subdural hematoma” or “three-and-a-half inch fracture” in the comments of your sittercity.com profile. It’s sad really. Also, I don’t think Olivia Madison Garcia’s parents will give her any type of favorable reference. Probably just out of spite.
