    I found three different verdicts on the internet:

    - Murder
    - manslaughter
    - bodily harm with fatal consequences

    And only murder got lifelong.

    Hmm, dont know really, why she didnt get lifelong in France. I dont think tho she'll be set free after 15 years, maybe her case was considered as mental insanity. :/

    For the US it's not hard to find examples of life without parole or death row given to mother's who killed just one of their newborns.

    Whilst I was looking for UK law on the matter I found this: "The police said the woman had been charged with "infant killing", which can be punished with up to 20 years in prison under Greek law." I'd need to find a description of Greek law on harsher sentences to get the context though.

    It's starting to look like infanticide (by mothers) is given special treatment in some places.

    She has been sentenced to 16 years in prison, plus 10 years in a securised mental institution. She will be supervised by doctors for life, anyway.

    So, what is the issue with the French legal system?

    Where's this come from? I'm still only getting info that she's been sentenced to jail for up to 15 years. 16 + 10 in an institute would make a lot more sense.

    Not that I'm specifically targeting France, but due to the keyword "french" being used I found the case of Véronique Courjault, who got 8 years for killing three of her newborns. Again no mention of any successful insanity plea or sentencing there of.

    I explicitly stated that my issue in this case was with the prosecutor who for some reason chose not to pursue a life sentence, which the French system allows for and which is appropriate for a crime a this magnitude.

    Well, we aren't the jury. Who are we to decide better than them?

    It was my understanding, based on the information from the article, that the relatively light sentence was due to prosecutor discretion rather than jury decision-was I mistaken?

    Yes you are.

    The jury decided to pick a far weaker sentence than the prosecutor.

    In the US usually the judge decides the sentence and the prosecutor and defense either stipulate or get their say. If it is not the same in France and the jury chose the sentence there really is no issue and better windmills for the OP to tilt.
