  • Mother performs home-made circumcision on 3 month old.



    A 29-year-old mother of four who is accused of trying to circumcise her 3-month-old son at home - but called 9-1-1 after she realized she botched the surgery - has been released from jail.

    Keemonta Peterson posted $500 and was released from jail with the requirement that she regularly check in with a Close Street Supervision deputy. Her first name is also spelled Keemonte.

    Portland police began investigating Peterson after responding to a call for medical help at 2 a.m. Oct. 24 at a house near East Burnside Street and 127th Avenue. The boy was rushed to a local hospital and initially listed in critical condition. Information about his health status today was not available.

    It's unclear why Peterson attempted to circumcise her son herself, but papers filed with the court make a vague reference to "religious reasons."

    A month ago, after a long investigation, Peterson was charged with first- and second-degree assault and first-degree criminal mistreatment. She was booked into jail, where she was held in lieu of $550,000 bail. Earlier this week in Multnomah County Circuit Court, Judge David Rees agreed to lower her bail to $5,000 - meaning she'd have to post $500 to get out.

    Prosecutor John Casalino opposed the lowering of Peterson's bail. But the Close Street Supervision deputy who will monitor her supported a much lower bail - saying she presents a minimal risk to the community and won't likely re-offend. In the months after the October incident, Peterson had been receiving mental-health counseling three times a week. She is unemployed, but had recently been caring for an ailing aunt.

    Peterson has no criminal convictions, but she was arrested in Texas in 2008 under suspicion of abandoning or endangering a child. According to a report, she told authorities that "she and her kids got lost and was without water."

    All four of Peterson's children are currently in foster care, although she has been allowed to see them with supervision. Her trial is scheduled for late June.

            Probably sounds like a good idea when you high on crack.

              Why was she performing the surgery period? If wanted isn't that done before the child leaves the hospital? I think she needs to stop having children.

                      2 separate offenses involving kids and they still let her be around them... sounds like the prosecutors need a slap too

                        Keemonta Peterson told police she watched some YouTube videos about circumcisions. Then around midnight on the morning of Oct. 24 - using a box cutter as a scalpel and a pair of pliers as a tourniquet - she began the procedure. She had no experience.

                        When the bleeding wouldn’t stop, she tried to stitch her baby up. Her 13-year-old son watched on in distress. After two hours of uncontrolled bleeding, Peterson decided she needed help and called 9-1-1 to her home near East Burnside Street and 127th Avenue.


                        Mulitation or mayhem comes to mind. And her bail was reduced? What a joke. Poor kids.
                        This profession is not for people looking for positive reinforcement from the public. Very often it can be a thankless job and you can't desire accolades, because those are not usually forthcoming. Just do your job to the best of your ability and live with the decisions you've made.

                          That is a nice neighborhood from what I remember.



                          So refresh my memory...

                          You need a license to drive a motor vehicle on a public roadway. The state requires this MV license because you may cause injury to yourself or others on said public roadway.

                          BUT.... you DON'T need a license to reproduce a human life... Which may not only effect you, but many others along the line (along the line of life), and we are not even talking remotely about public roadways. Look at all the other social concerns here. Seriously.

                          Don't get me started.
