Osburn says Mott tried to pick Cox up to console him, but he was hooked up to lots of tubes and monitors. He says Mott stumbled in the dark and dropped the boy.
Kim Parker says she's offended the defense would ask for departure. She says part of the reason Cox had so many health problems was because he was born testing positive for THC, and Cox was essentially abandoned by his mother at the hospital.
Parker says the evidence shows Cox was "violently and brutally abused" by a "passive-aggressive woman with significant anger problems."
She also says Mott has continued to abuse drugs during her time out on bond.
In court, Megan Mott said, "I was reckless, but I did not do this to my son. What they're saying is not true. I wish you'd give me a chance."
She told the judge her four-year-old daughter still needs her.
The victim's father, Mason Cox, spoke in support of Mott. The two are still married. "I believe with all my soul that it was an accident like she said," Cox told the judge.
"Our son is gone," said Cox. "There's no doubt about it. I've asked her numerous times, ‘Did you do this on purpose?' and over and over again it's been, ‘No, no, no.'"
"I want nothing more than to have her home with me so we can get the help we need."
"She is responsible for Robby's death, but not in the way they say she is."
Judge Anthony Powell says Mott asking for probation was just a final act of escape from the situation.
"The life of Robby Cox matters a great deal, and it's more than just a tragedy," Powell said in court. "This case is more than a tragedy. It's an atrocity is what it is."
