MINEOLA, N.Y. –  A judge is holding a hearing Wednesday to determine whether a Long Island mother found not guilty because of mental disease in the 2008 drowning of her three children deserves a piece of their $350,000 estate.

Thirty-three-year-old Leatrice Brewer's bid hinges on whether her case applies to New York's "Son of Sam" law. It was enacted in the 1970s following the capture of serial killer David Berkowitz and sought to bar him and other criminals from profiting from their crimes.

Some legal experts say because she was never convicted, a judge may rule Brewer is not subject to the law.

The money comes from lawsuits the fathers of the children settled with Nassau County over claims that social services workers failed to properly monitor Brewer.


she has a mental disease yet has the mental ability to want the money?

Welcome to Bizarro World.
The skeptic is never for real. There he stands, cocktail in hand, left arm draped languorously on one end of the mantelpiece, telling you that he can't be sure of anything, not even of his own existence. I'll give you my secret method of demolishing universal skepticism in four words. Whisper to him: "Your fly is open." If he thinks knowledge is so all-fired impossible, why does he always look? — James Sire (from, The Universe Next Door)
