He was born with half head wait till you see him three decades later they said that this man was born like that but the hard truth was very impressed all we have to pray for this man I like to think we live in affair and just world one where good things come to good people and justice is served to those who do wrong the left half of his skull was totally destroyed in the robbery and he is suffering from sunken brain syndrome after a large part of his cranium had to be removed.
Some accidents are plain brutal and horrific and we can’t stop thinking about it once we get to know this is one such incident. Since May 2018, 32 year old Steven Augustine has been fighting for his life in the hospital. The doctors say he was attacked with a baseball bat while walking home from work in New York City.
Unfortunately, as we all likely know, that’s rarely the case. A father of two has been left with a sunken brain and half of his skull following a violent assault in New York City. Worse, reports state his attacker only served two months of his sentence it was an incident of robbery and the doctors had to remove the left side of his skull which was crushed and this left him paralyzed the specialists are planning to create a special plastic skull for the protection of his brain.
He needs to go through further surgery for this process. The father having two kids is suffering from sunken brain syndrome it’s a rare case where they had to remove a part of his skull. The procedure makes him look like half of his head is absent his 56 year old mother Donna has been by his side through the entire process.
The heartbroken mother says that Steven’s condition is not improving it’s rather deteriorating moreover, Steven’s family are infuriated that Charles Miles, his attacker, received a mere misdemeanor charge. Charles only served 72 days out of his 365 day sentence at Ulster County Jail doctors say Steven’s injuries are still severe because of blunt force trauma of getting hit on the head with a baseball bat. Miles attorney claimed that he didn’t intend to harm Stevens.
It was apparently just a punch after which he fell to the ground and sustained those injuries. But Donna said it’s impossible to have those kind of injuries after just a single punch. Stephen was one jolly person and worked as a chef and he loved his wife and his children more than anything. Adding to his already bad state, the specialist tried to replace the missing bones in his skull with a steel plate but it became infected twice.
Stephen is going through severe seizures and the doctors are giving him medicines to avoid that. However, the medicines are damaging his liver. Steven can just blink to say yes or no for now. He cries every single time he sees his two sons. Seven year old Michael and eleven year old Steven Jr. Donna has posted her pain for what happened with her poor son.
While crime victims canceled Stephen surgery on Monday, they called late Friday so there was little I could do. Crime victims, the surgery was planned for months, paid all the neurosurgeon. Then I believe they canceled surgery for Steven because they were mad at me for Steven’s song and the post I have made in regards to Stephen’s case on Friday.
The one who canceled was Anne Marie Calibras from Albany. Crime Victims. This was life saving surgery that we had waited long for. Steven has sunken brain syndrome and the skin is growing to his brain and causing Stephen to have seizures. He’s on three meds that are dangerous to his liver to somewhat control these horrible seizures that have went from facial seizures to one. Now that his body shakes, seizures can kill him.
He’s been hospitalized because of just a couple of months ago where I met a doctor that was to do his surgery. Also plate is needed for head, for protecting brain and to equal fluid in brain. It is lifesaving surgery and the delay could cause Steven his life. Also in the begging of. This was a big fight to get Steven to be able to receive benefits from crime victims. It took lawyers, court and a lot of people intervening to get Steven the help.
It took a long time in court. They were withholding services because out of my spoken criticism of the way my son’s case was handled, they refused to help because of anger towards me. The district attorneys often have four people in charge of all and are one office. It consists of Holy Car Right as a district attorney. He stepped down days after Steven story aired on ABC Channel Seven News. And Mr. Michael Cavanaugh, chief assistant to Mr. Carn Right took over as district attorney and is now running for election of district attorney. Please don’t vote for him. He has mishandled Stephen’s case as well as Mr. Carnright and Mr. Weissop Tab.
Charles Miles works as an indoor man for their office as well as for the Kingston Police Department and for urgent. They went above and beyond to protect him and the others involved only charging him with a misdemeanor charge that he only did nine months. Steven’s hospital records clearly state blunt force trauma, possibly with baseball bat and mutable skull fractures that Steven doctors said could not have happened from one punch and hitting the ground.
His left side of head shattered and mutable skull fractures throughout head and face and brain bleeds and facial fractures. They were untruthful with Judge Ball and said the misdemeanor charge was based on Steven medical records and the camera footage that Mr. Wisehopped said was visible. Charles Miles hitting my son once and hitting him on the ground took months for Channel Seven and me to get copy of tape.
When we did, it was altered and so much static on the tape could barely see. Fire truck pulling channel seven took their tape back to the city and their experts examined it and said it was clearly altered. Everything they told Judge Ball was not the truth and even tried to get Miles sentence reduced to six months and he would have been put in four.
But Judge Ball, I believe knew something not right. Refused their request. This is who is in charge at the District Attorney office. Holly Carnight as District Attorney. And second in charge is Michael Kavanaugh is the Chief assistant. Then third is Mr. William Y shaped as Chief of Investigations. And the fourth is Catherine Van Sloan as Chief of Special Victims Bureau. It was crime victims that canceled surgery Friday.
She said she needed on Friday almost at closing. The refusal from MVP and an estimate of how much the charge would be for the hospital. She couldn’t do it without that. So a lot of people working hard on the phone to get this fax to her me and Anne and Nurse Milks and Agnes all working so hard to get this last minute request from Albany crime victims.
We got it to her then. She still refused surgery because she said it was elected surgery. This surgery is life or death. I explained all I just told you in post. I said, doctor has already been paid by you and you know the date of surgery. To cancel the surgery on such short notice was uncountable. To do this to Stephen after all the prep test.
I believe it was done in retaliation for myself utilizing my freedom of speech to take it out on my son who has been fighting the last year and a half to live for his sons. Every day he fights and fights for his life. To do this, to cancel his surgery. I just can’t believe how cruel. Working with lawyers now and standing my ground.
I have been worried about this kind of retaliation against Stephen. I’ve been scared they would stop payment for Steven’s acute care long term hospital. They never wanted to help me. From the begging to it went to court. Steven is in critical condition and any kind of alteration of his treatment can kill him. Now look, they canceled his life saving surgery.
Dear God, someone helped my son. Do you see what they can do to you? And brag about getting away with this could be your child and your family member. This could happen to anyone. It has been like this for years. Please keep my son’s plate in your mind when you vote. We need someone honest that cares about the people, not just business and money. Look at my son.
Think of my grandson’s. Our life has been destroyed. Please help us get the truth out. Help me so my son can live. Help me make our streets safe. Look at Stephen. May the good Lord bless and save him and please dear God, let Steve Augustine get justice. It was a premeditated attempt to murder with multiple people with blunt force trauma and robbery that left my son with his head cracked open bleeding to death in the cake box parking lot.
He was walking home from work and stopped at the store. He left the store at 1051. They found him at eleven seven in the parking lot. They dropped him off at hospital and said he was drunk and fell and hit his head. When police came to my house a little before 04:00 a.m. Said that to us but also said he could have been a victim of assault.
They said transferred to Mid Hudson Regional Hospital for emergency surgery. I rushed to hospital praying the whole way. Doctor came out in about an hour and a half and told me Stephen was probably not going to make it and wound sarcoma to this attack. I kept praying and praying no, please God, help him, no.
