New Jersey Woman Charged With Beating, Abandoning Newborn Near Weehawken H.S.

JERSEY CITY, N.J. (CBSNewYork/AP) — A New Jersey mother and special education teacher has been charged with assaulting and endangering her 1-month-old baby, who was found abandoned outside Weehawken High School.

A court-appointed lawyer for 37-year-old Tamara Reyes of Weehawken entered a not guilty plea for her Wednesday in a Jersey City court. Reyes is charged with aggravated assault, endangering the welfare of a child and child abuse. She is in custody and bail has not been set.

Reyes was special education teacher at Memorial High School in West New York, New Jersey.

Hudson County Prosecutor Edward DeFazio says Reyes’ daughter was found June 10 face-down on a sidewalk in front of the school and not on the school steps as originally reported.

Reyes was stopped nearby by police for driving erratically.

DeFazio says the baby had a skull fracture and other injuries that could be consistent with being thrown from a car. She remains hospitalized.

    This isn’t a brainless, hysterical 14 year old, but a middle-aged 37 year old woman. Throw a baby from a car? All the vicious criminal had to do was drive to a hospital, leave the poor baby girl with the receptionist, and leave.

    THIS IS WHY WE ALL NEED TO SIT BACK & REALLY THINK BEFORE WE DECIDE TO START A FAMILY. WE HAVE TOO MANY “WOMEN” IN GENERAL WHO KNOWINGLY CONCEIVE CHILDREN FOR ALL THE WRONG REASONS. MY DEEPEST PRAYERS GOES OUT TO THAT CHILD & ALL OTHERS ! ! ! ! I HAVE NO CHILDREN ( MY CHOICE IN LIFE) & WHEN THINGS LIKE THIS HAPPENS, I DON’T REGRET MY CHOICES IN LIFE !

    Wondering if this mother could have post-partum depression. Something is very, very wrong with her.

    Wow, I’m positive the devil is here people. In the last year, I can’t believe how many stories I have read about babies and children being beat to death. Morality, compassion, empathy has been thrown out the window except when it comes to gays and illegals. Sickening.

    1. C says:

      I am in complete agreement with you. We are living in hell right now. The amount of child abuse is stomach turning and sickening.

    2. KPMc says:

      “Morality, compassion, empathy has been thrown out the window except when it comes to gays and illegals.”

      Wait… are you saying it is only gay people and illegal aliens who are compassionate, moral and show empathy or are you saying society is showing its morality, compassion and empathy by way of how it is treating issues associated with these two groups?

      I get the feeling you didn’t mean either one of those things rather you have no idea how to correctly construct a sentence and articulate yourself.
