Court Watch Monday Jan. 13, 3:00 West Palm Beach criminal case
January 13 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Court Watch on Monday January 13 at 3 PM in West Palm Beach, Judge Volker, courtroom 11G. Raphaella Soussa has been incarcerated and denied bail for months. This hearing is for the judge to decide if her rights were denied because there was no Portuguese interpreter to read her Miranda rights when she was arrested. Someone read to her in Spanish, which she does not understand.
She is being charged with attempted first degree murder when she disposed of what she believed was a stillborn from an unassisted delivery. She did not know that she was pregnant, neither did her husband nor their friends. This is called a “Cryptic Pregnancy” and is more common than people realize–one in 450 pregnancies are said to be cryptic.
