A woman from Arlington, Texas, thought she would get away with her crimes until she was caught by police. Amanda Smith, the mother abandoned her 9-month-old baby face-down in a creek and left him for dead. She was arrested and charged with abandoning and endangering a child, she broke down in court and begged for a second chance. Amanda blamed her actions on the alcohol in her system and said she would never do it again. Her previous records show a pattern and the judge did not belive her.
