(11/03/06) CENTRAL ISLIP - A jury found a Mastic mom accused of denying her daughter's chemotherapy guilty of one charge, but failed to decide on two other counts Friday.
Ursula Loscalzo was found guilty of endangering the welfare of a child, the one charge not directly related to her 5-year-old daughter's cancer treatment. Jury members say they found Loscalzo guilty on that charge because of the living conditions to which she subjected her six children. The judge called a hung jury after the group of 12 was unable to decide on misdemeanor charges of neglect and child abuse.
Loscalzo claims she did not reject her daughter's chemotherapy. She claims she asked the doctor for a second opinion before he became insulted and condescending. Loscalzo's sentencing is scheduled for December 22, but she says with her children in foster care her sentencing has already taken place.
