START A PETITION 25,136,189 members: the world's largest community for good
Jul 28, 2011

Action Request:Petition
Location:United States

This worldwide petition is for baby Brianna Lopez, who knew nothing but agony in her 5 short MONTHS of life. She was murdered 9 years ago this month. Little Brianna was bitten (leaving purple toothmarked scars all over her body), swung by her legs, and thrown across the room by her mother, bitten, raped repeatedly and manually penetrated by both her father and uncle, slammed against the ceiling and let fall to the floor repeatedly, and left on the floor to suffer. Her ribs had been broken for weeks previous to her death and she had blood on her brain for weeks. Another uncle and her grandmother were fully aware of her abuse and did NOTHING to stop this (and they served less than two months in jail for this). Neither of her murderers (her father and uncle) even got life sentences. 

No one in Brianna's family would even come forward to claim her little body after the autopsy, so she was buried by the community of Las Cruces, New Mexico. Further details are in the petition overview, and the more one reads about her, the more heartbreaking, and infuriating, her story is. It must be told to the world so she won't be forgotten and that justice be served.
I also want to respectfully warn you that there is a large graphic image of Brianna's abuse (showing bruising on her face and head) attached with the petition, and it is of course very shocking and upsetting, but I know it's posted there to show the world what kind of monsters Stephanie Lopez and her family are to torture and destroy this precious baby. Let's make sure she stays behind bars (though I think she --and all of them- deserve MUCH WORSE punishment than that)! Here's the link:
**Though the petition has a specific signature number target, I read a post from the petition writer which said it is possible to keep signing once that target is met. The target hasn't been met yet, but when it is, please do still try and sign the petition. **

Please leave a comment below to let me know you've read this and signed for Baby Brianna. Thank you. <3

I just made a mistake. Brianna's other uncle and grandmother were sentence to only 30 DAYS in jail.

Thank you very much, Serena. Apparently, the New Mexico Parole Board wrote back to the petition author recently and said that Stephanie Lopez can get out of prison after serving only 50% of her 27 year sentence. Apparently, torturing, biting, beating, and throwing a baby and standing by while she is raped and murdered is not considered a "serious violent offense" in New Mexico. Because of this, she only has to serve that 50% of her short 27 year sentence (her reward for "good behavior" in prison!!). I can't believe it. But there is still a need to show a national and international outcry at these ridiculous laws and the injustice. So I still encourage everyone to please sign. Thanks again, Serena!

This is the letter from the parole board (August 8, 2011)
