A mere three years for attempting to kill her own daughter. via: Quebec woman who attacked daughter with cleaver handed three-year sentence h/t TROP
MONTREAL — A Quebec woman who attacked her daughter with a meat cleaver after the teen had been out partying has been sentenced to three years in jail.
Johra Kaleki was found guilty in March 2015 of attempted murder in the 2010 attack of her then 19-year-old daughter.
Quebec court Judge Yves Paradis sentenced Kaleki on Tuesday and described her act as a serious crime that could have been fatal had her husband not intervened.
The 44-year-old Afghan-born mother of four was incensed at her daughter and said she’d disrespected the family by staying out.
The young woman did not want to pursue a criminal complaint against her mother.
Prosecutor Anne Gauvin says she doesn’t know if the daughter’s wish was a determining factor in the sentence but adds it certainly played a part.
The Crown was seeking a 10-year prison sentence while the defence was asking for a conditional sentence.
The trial heard that Kaleki struck her daughter twice with the cleaver and tried to choke her.
In finding her guilty, Paradis rejected a defence argument that Kaleki was not criminally responsible for the act by way of a brief psychotic disorder.
In Islam, according the “The Classic Manual of Islamic Sacred Law ‘Umdat al-Salik by Ahmad ibn Naqib al-Misri (d. 769/1368) in Arabic,” there would be no punishment even if the daughter had been killed.
