Yanira Bernice Valderrama Cuts Deal for Drowning Newborn in Toilet and Tossing Him in Trash Bin

A 21-year-old Fullerton woman has pleaded guilty to felony child abuse in a deal with prosecutors that removes a murder count for drowning her newborn boy in a toilet and hiding his body in a bedroom trash can.

Yanira Bernice Valderrama also admitted to a sentencing enhancement of inflicting great bodily harm.

Speaking of sentencing, it's unclear what kind of punishment Valderrama faces at a scheduled Oct. 21 hearing in Santa Ana. With the murder count, she was looking at the possibility of 15 years to life in state prison.



Fullerton Police detectives believed Valderrama hid her pregnancy from her parents, who the then-19-year-old was living with on Sept. 4, 2009, when she gave birth to a baby boy in her bathroom around 10 p.m.

According to prosecutors, when Valderrama heard her mother trying to enter from a connecting bathroom, the teen stuffed her baby in the toilet until her mom left. She is accused of then wrapping the newborn in a t-shirt and tossing the little bundle of joy in a bedroom trashcan. Valderrama went on to expel the placenta, hiding it under the bathroom sink.

Later that night, Valderrama's mother walked into the same bathroom, saw large amounts of blood and called 9-1-1. Paramedics took the teen and the placenta that mom found under the sink to Anaheim Memorial Hospital. Doctors examined Valderrama and determined that she had just given birth and alerted police.

Cops found the deceased newborn in the bedroom trash can.

Dang. This is absolutely sick. I really want to know what was going through this girls mind throughout her pregnancy non-the-less when she murdered her child, and why she would be so cruel by throwing him in a damn trashcan as if he wasnt even a living being, let alone her own child. Another thing id like to know is if she didnt want her parents to know about her pregnancy, she couldve gotten an abortion at a clinic that does it for free (if shes poor). id like to know that if she cared about this child enough to keep it and bring him into the world, why would she just throw his life away as if he meant nothing to her at all?

Normally I'm out for blood too but when I hear these stories i wonder what caused this girl to be so scared of her parent that she would do this? She was 19 at the time, still an adult, but I always wonder if she was the victim of abuse at the hands of her father as well?

I'm appalled they dropped the murder charge. She doesn't deserve any deals, either.

Study more spanish before you try to put words together in a sentence, you idiot. The worthless and not normal one I see here is you.

So Mexicans are not normal? what IS normal? I am not going to spend an hour in researching statistics, but from an obvious observation in the California culture that Latinos seem to be just as present as Whites, will make them the norm...

I believe that there are many merits in this case that are not being published, and probably should not be public. It is a sad situation that should have been preventable. I feel perhaps the girls parents did not pay enough attention. Didn't she have friends? perhaps she was too big, did not have the "right" cell phone or dress fashionably... but I also noted nothing has been mentioned of the "father" in this case...

It is not relevant if anything happened in your childhood.. you dont do that to a human life.. she is no better then a wild animal in the forest and should die a very painful death.. preferably drowned in the toilet with the shit and piss stil in it...

I disagree, if she was able tO have sex she could very well sneak off tO a hospital give birth then gO home

Very good points. Knowing the "why" in this situation IS extremely important. But despite her personal/family problems, she still could have left the baby at any number of safe locations with no questions asked...

yeah, i guess its normal for mexicans to flush their babies down the toilet... actually LA would be a much better place if they all did that.... i would chip in for larger toilets for all mexicans.. who is with me?

What are you talking about Laura? It seems you are replying to the racist "liberals are hypocrites" & "mexicans es muy stupido" but the comment is directed to my comment?

Was there no Reply link to their comments or what?

You should never let another persons beliefs make you feel ashamed of who you are, (unless you share those beliefs)

I'm starting to think liberals and mexicans are the same person... Am I the only one? Shoo trolls, no one wants to hear your racist BS... You people make me ashamed to be white.

It is not normal for ANYONE to stuff a newborn into a toilet. it is not normal to hide a pregnancy. I doubt many would be with you. This girl was not all there, and to make it a race issue is just stupid...
