Jury convicts Dale, Shannon Hickman of manslaughter in faith-healing trial

Oregon City, USA - A jury on Thursday (Sept. 29) unanimously convicted an Oregon couple, Dale and Shannon Hickman, in the faith-healing death of their infant son.
Both parents were found guilty of second-degree manslaughter, a Class B felony that requires a sentence of at least six years and three months in prison under Oregon’s mandatory sentencing law. However, because of a religious exemption that was eliminated after the Hickmans were indicted, they could face less than 18 months in prison and a $250,000 fine.
This is how dangerous religion can be. There are some people in this world that are taking this BS seriously. Their minds are weak and gullible.
