Parents freed after son dies through lack of medical attention

A 16 month old boy died of dehydration and pneumonia allegedly resulting from the restricted vegetarian diet imposed by his parents. His parents had removed all animal products from his diet including milk, eggs and cheese. The boyís mother was a nurse but she failed to take him to doctors because she didnít believe in conventional medicine. The couple were placed on a suspended 2 year jail term for not taking him to the doctor resulting in his death. The judge claimed the leniency was due the fact that the parents had the childís best interests at heart.
