The Mesa mom convicted of child abuse for leaving her 2-year-old son locked in a closet was sentenced to probation by a Maricopa County Superior Court Judge this morning.
Corrina Davis was arrested back in January after a Mesa constable served an eviction notice at her apartment. Davis wasn't there, but her son was -- alone and in a closet.
The boy had bruises on his face, and it appeared to police that the closet was the boy's living quarters.
Davis, who claimed she was at work when the boy was discovered, also happened to be an escort, who advertised her services on Backpage.com (full disclosure time:Backpage.com is part of Village Voice Media, which also owns Phoenix New Times.).
She described herself in her ads as a "wet and wild milf" in need of "help."
She's not foolin' anyone, though. She also includes some graphic pictures of herself, where it's clear that there's nothing remotely MILFy about her.
Here's an excerpt from her ad:
Hi Guys and Gals! The name is Barbie! I find myself in need of some help
after the holidays and need your help! I am open minded and ready to
rumble. I will not change my rates. I will also not upsell. I am a real
girl that needs real help and I dont want to play games. If I am what
you are looking for and your willing to help me out please email your
name and number and I will call you ASAP. Both girls and guys are
welcome to call me I can take care of both. I promise you wont be
disappointed. I will not answer any blocked calls. I will however answer
texts as long as you state your name and dont go into any details.
Later in the ad, "Barbie" insists she is not a prostitute.
Whatever you say...
Her Myspace page doesn't exactly scream mother of the year, either.
While she claims to be the "Proud mother of one little boy," she also gave a video-lesson on how to roll a blunt and posted pictures of herself doin' bong hits.
Davis was sentenced to 14 years supervised probation for one count of child abuse.
