At yesterday’s sentencing, Anthony told Clark County District Court Judge Tierra Jones: ‘I went to trial to prove my innocence. You know, I love my children. I miss my son every day. I mourn his death. I celebrate his birthday. No matter what they say. I love my son.’

Aside from the prison sentence, Anthony was ordered to pay restitution to Clark County Animal Control in excess of $1,000.

Diana Jackson, Anthony’s sister, also told the court yesterday that she adopted the other two children.

‘The children today are happy and full of life and love and they want to see him one day as much as the rest of us in a world where we can heal together as a whole. We have suffered enough and we just want to be able to heal with him outside the prison walls one day,’ she said.

Diana requested that Anthony be sentenced the same as Loreana.

Records show that Hannibal’s pediatrician, Shazia Kirmani, allegedly told Loreana during an examination that her son was not thriving and that she needed to supplement her breast milk.

She was asked to monitor her son’s weight and return in three weeks, according to the police report.

But Loreana was “combative” and failed to return to any of her schedule appointments, according to the report.

Loreana later denied that Kirmani advised her to supplement her breastfeeding or scheduled any follow-ups, claiming the doctor told her Hannibal was ‘doing great’.

She insisted that she breastfeed her son several times a day, for at least 45 minutes.

Officials noted that the pediatrician did not notify Child Protective Services of suspected child abuse, which is a legal requirement for doctors across the country.

The parents will remain at the Clark County Detention Center from now on and will eventually be transferred to the Nevada Department of Corrections.
