      A month after the so-called vegan father was slashed in jail, supporters
      say they are concerned about the well-being of the vegan mother.

      One advocate said the couple, Joseph and Silva Swinton, are gentle people
      who will not survive the five- and six-year sentences handed down by a
      State Supreme Court judge in Queens.

      "They're not criminals. They don't have criminal body language. They don't
      have criminal verbiage . . . They have been put in a bowl with hungry
      sharks and they don''t even know how to swim," said the Rev. Herbert
      Daughtry, the couple's spiritual adviser.

      On June 24, Silva Swinton suffered bruises and a cracked tooth after
      fainting in a recreation area at Rikers Island city jail, a jail spokesman
      said.
      ...
      The Swintons kept their baby daughter on a diet that included crushed
      nuts, fruit juice, vegetables and cod liver oil.

      Evidence showed that the baby, who was 16-months-old at the time, was
      toothless, had rickets and was too weak to move her limbs or cry.
