Texas man just got this shocking sentence for drugging wife’s drinks to induce an abortion

America’s criminal justice system is a complete disaster.

And it’s even a major problem in supposedly law and order Texas.

Now one Texas man just got this shocking sentence for drugging wife’s drinks to induce an abortion.

A Texas man drugged his wife’s drinks in an attempt to induce an abortion. 

A shockingly light sentence for attempted murder 

Despite being found guilty of the horrendous crime, the man received a shockingly light sentence of only 180 days in jail and 10 years on probation.

Mason Herring, who is a 39-year-old Houston attorney, pleaded guilty to the lesser crime of injury to a child and assault of a pregnant person. 

He had initially been charged with felony assault to induce abortion.

His wife, Catherine Herring, who has since filed for divorce, told the court the jail sentence was not long enough. 

She said their 1-year-old daughter, their third child together, was born about 10 weeks premature, has developmental problems and currently has to attend therapy eight times a week.

“I do not believe that 180 days is justice for attempting to kill your child seven separate times,” Catherine Herring said.

Harris County District Attorney Kim Ogg’s office has so far refused to comment on the lenient sentence.

Mason Herring was sentenced by state District Judge Andrea Beall.

Catherine Herring told authorities that in March 2022 her husband began lecturing her on hydration and offering her water. 

Caught on video

Herring said she became severely ill after drinking from the first cup he gave her that she said appeared cloudy.

When she told him, her husband attempted to explain it was likely just the result of either the cup or water pipes being dirty.

Catherine Herring became suspicious and began refusing multiple other drinks of water her husband offered. 

She testified she later found packaging for a drug that contained misoprostol, a medicine used to induce abortion, in the trash.

She also gave police videos from hidden cameras she had installed at her home where her husband was no longer living. 

One of those videos showed him mixing a substance in one of her drinks, Catherine Herring said.

Despite the lenient sentence, Mason Herring’s attorney, Dan Codgell, called the plea deal and sentence reasonable.

“It’s a sad situation and Mason has accepted his responsibility,” Cogdell said.

Unfortunately, in this case of assault and attempted murder, justice was clearly not served.

Had he tried to poison his wife, and kill their unborn child using any other poison, he likely would have faced a far tougher sentence.

But the criminal justice system is either afraid of, or a party to, the radical pro-abortion lobby.

Meanwhile, peaceful pro-life activists are being locked away for decades merely for praying outside of abortion mills.

This two-tiered injustice system must be corrected both nationally and in the states.

This is true even in the Lonestar State which claims to be both pro-life and tough on crime.
