A Missouri mother is facing charges, but drawing sympathy
from hundreds, for a baseball bat attack on her son’s alleged heroin
Sherrie Gavan of Imperial, near St. Louis, was arraigned Monday on
charges of third-degree assault. The judge refused to dismiss the case.
Gavan told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch that she tried everything to
protect her son, Clayton, even sending him to a different high school.
When those efforts failed, she drove to the home of 21-year-old Joshua Loyd, whom she believed supplied the drugs, and struck him with an aluminum bat.
“”I don’t know if I can say that what I did was right,” Gavan told
the Post-Dispatch. “But it was the only thing I could do in the moment.”
The four foot eleven inch Gavan said her son was trying to stay clean.
