8-plus years in prison for mom who kept disabled son, 6, in attic

Perez

From Joe Lambe:

A Johnson County judge today sentenced a De Soto woman to more than eight years for starving her 6-year-old son and confining him in her attic.

Rachel Perez, 27, pleaded guilty previously to child abuse and child endangerment and no contest to attempted second-degree murder. Judge Peter Ruddick quickly sentenced her to the maximum possible — 8 ½ years — after hearing arguments from the lawyers.
