WICHITA FALLS, TX (KAUZ) -
A judge has decided that Sara Woody, who was sentenced to 45 years of prison on 16 child abuse charges, will not keep her rights to be a parent.Woody took the stand and testified that there were inconsistencies in her kids testimony. She told Judge Greg King Wednesday morning under oath that several details in her children's testimony at the child abuse trial were simply false.During Woody's trial, two of the kids testified they had to do 800 to 900 pushups as punishment. Woody said none of her kids can even do that many pushups.Some of the children also testified they were forced to drink apple cider vinegar until they would throw up. Woody said it was used as a homeopathic remedy to cure sore throats and ear infections, but she never forced them to use it.Finally, one of her kids testified about being beaten with a spoon causing a busted lip. Woody said based on that testimony, the injuries were not as bad as they would have been if they were beaten with a spoon the way they said they were.Judge King said he terminated both Sara and Jonathan Woody's parental rights because the children need stability in their life and can't get that if she is in prison. He added that it would be putting the children in danger being in their custody.A Child Advocate for CASA, who serves as a voice for the children and has been with this case since the beginning, recommended many of the actions the judge took. That includes terminating the parental rights of Sara and Jonathan Woody, and for the children to be put up for adoption.The state has custody of four of the kids. The other two are with another family right now.
