Wisconsin Couple Who Prayed Instead Of Getting Daughter Care Get Probation And Jail

Posted by | October 6, 2009 19:08 | Filed under: Top Stories

Dale and Leilani Neuman were sentenced to ten years probation and 30 days in jail a year for six years for praying instead of getting medical care for their 11-year old daughter.


They were convicted at separate trials of second-degree reckless homicide in Madeline Neumann’s March 2003 death from undiagnosed diabetes.


Prosecutors contended the parents should have rushed the girl to a hospital because she couldn’t walk, talk, eat or drink. Madeline died on the floor of the family’s rural home as people surrounded her and prayed. Someone called 911 when she stopped breathing.


The Neumanns say they believe all healing comes from God.
