A woman currently in jail for poisoning babies while they were in her care has been slapped with more jail time for abusing her daughter.
Sa’adiah Jamari, 41, today pleaded guilty to one count of voluntarily causing hurt to a person and received another four months in jail for abusing her daughter. Two other charges were taken into consideration.
The former babysitter and nurse is currently serving a seven-year jail sentence, which began in 2020, for poisoning two babies —a 5-month-old and an 11-month-old — under her care for four years using a concoction of drugs including Xanax.
According to the court, Sa’adiah was physically and verbally abusive to her two daughters since they were 6 years old – they are 20 and 21 now.
Her younger daughter attempted to report the abuse to her school counselor but it made things worse after the matter was brought to Sa’adiah, who promised that she would change but continued the abuse.
The court heard that last June, while out on bail for her baby poisoning offenses, Sa’adiah scolded her daughters, threw items on the floor and snatched her older daughter’s phone after an argument with her doctor boyfriend who refused to give her allowance.
Sa’adiah then closed the door on her older daughter’s feet several times when the latter tried to retrieve her phone. She also pulled her daughter’s hair, kicked her stomach and punched her multiple times.
She then hit her with a clothes hanger until it bent and cut her with an eyebrow razor on her thigh. She also pointed a pair of scissors at her but the daughter managed to grab it and throw it out the window.
The younger daughter fled the house and called the police, who arrived soon thereafter. The older daughter, who sustained bruises on her back, arms, knee, head and shoulder blade, was taken to the hospital.
A report by the Institute of Mental Health found that Sa’adiah was not suffering from major depressive disorder during the incident as her prosecutors had claimed. The report concluded her behavior was spurred by worries about going to prison for her baby poisoning offenses.
