Mother Also Sentenced as Case Reveals Chronic Neglect Leading to Daughter’s Death

The horrifying details came to light when Karmity was found unresponsive at home on January 21, 2022. She was rushed to Cincinnati Children’s Hospital where she was declared brain-dead two days later. Medical examinations revealed that Karmity had been suffering from long-standing neglect marked by severe tooth decay and an unmanaged diabetic condition. The child’s mother Tamara Banks also faced charges for her part in the neglect that led to Karmity’s death. In May Banks was sentenced to a prison term of nine to 13.5 years reflecting the gravity of the neglect and mistreatment of their daughter. Prosecutor Clay Tharp emphasized that Karmity had been born addicted to methadone and had not received adequate medical attention afterward painting a picture of sustained neglect and a tragic failure in parental responsibility. The combination of these factors led to a preventable and devastating outcome for the young girl.

At his sentencing Christopher Hoeb expressed deep regret saying his “carelessness and laziness” led to his daughter Karmity’s death. He admitted failing to provide her with the necessary care and medical attention. This case highlights the severe consequences of neglecting children’s health and proper nutrition especially for those with conditions like diabetes. It underscores the importance of attentive parenting and medical care in protecting children’s well-being and shows the devastating effects when these responsibilities are ignored.
