Ricardo WimbushBUFORD, GA – Recardo Wimbush, a former Georgia Tech football player, has been charged after police say he kept his 13-year-old son in a room for most of the past two years.

Police say an investigation started by an anonymous tip to the Division of Family and Children Services lead to the 33-year-old and his wife, 37-year-old Therian Wimbush, being charged with cruelty to children in the first degree and false imprisonment.

It is being alleged that the couple imprisoned the oldest of their ten children for almost two years in a room with concrete walls and a hardwood floor. The only light came from the small amount of daylight that made it through the one window in the room that had been painted white.

The room had no books or any form of entertainment. In the time he was kept in the room, he was fed at regular times and allowed out to use the bathroom, but was not allowed to attend school or have access to his nine siblings.

According to the criminal arrest warrant, “Therian and Recardo justified [the boy’s] treatment in Juvenile Court by saying [he] molested three of the younger siblings. [The boy] stated that he was locked in the bedroom located in the basement for taking the family DVD player and lying about it.”

A lock was later added to room’s door because the parents claim the boy had tried repeatedly to run away. After the Department of Family and Children Services made their first visit on June 16, the couple were not charged with a crime and were allowed to keep all of their children, including the victim.

But a few days later, after the investigation revealed the severity of the abuse, a judge ordered all of the children to be placed in DFCS custody and charged both parents with cruelty to children and false imprisonment.

Police said Therian and Recardo Wimbush are expected to turn themselves into police sometime today. According to Gwinnett County Detention Center records, the couple were arrested on simple battery charges in 2005.

    TEN FUCKING KIDS?! Omg I can’t handle it, I’m gonna pass out/faint. TEN FUCKING KIDS? Really???

  • ShelbySP

    In what universe is it necessary or acceptable to have 10 kids? Is this the 1700s? Are you afraid most of them will get the smallpox and perish? My giner hurts just thinking about it.

  • Lena60

    Both my brain and gina hurt.Dudes only 33 with10 kids . For Christ sakes dude, leave it in your pants once in awhile, or tie it in a knot.

  • Lena60

    hmm. The kid did not haver access to anything, not even school.They had him locked up since he was 11.I guess nobody, not even the school staff wondered what happened to him? * shakes head*

  • Kelly

    This is a very weird one indeed. Normally in cases like this they are beaten/starved/left to piss/shit on the floor. Very strange indeed. If he molested the other kids maybe in their mind this is what had to be done or maybe with that many kids one less being around wouldn’t make much of a difference. Hopefully, there will be more details released. Can you imagine? 2 years in an empty room? Thugs in prison get more stimulation. He’s more than likely ruined for life.

  • King A sshole

    Again hardware store.

  • thinkaboutit75

    well if he was trully blowing his siblings backs out he was already ruined

  • Twisted1

    If he did molest his siblings then I think that ship sailed long before his parents tried to do a solo take on flowers in the attic.

  • thinkaboutit75

    Damn 33 10 kids..playing football for Georgia Tech?*&%$?#@ Really!!!

  • thinkaboutit75

    giner …LOL you need help!

    Why are the parents in juvenile court and why the fuck did DCF leave those kids there? Oh….that’s right…taking them would have meant more paperwork and require someone to actually do their fucking job. Thank god for the judge.

  • Vesper B

    I’m losing my mind with two kids. TWO! And I’m the same age as this guy. If I had ten, I’d be committed

  • 1DireWolf

    Damn, fucking that woman would be like walking through a warm room with your fly open. I bet you could shout into it and hear an echo.

  • shewentwhoa

  • CallMeMister

    The other day, I was going down on my girlfriend, I said to her, “Jeez you got a big pussy. Jeez you got a big pussy.” She said, “Why did you say that twice?” I said, “I didn’t.”

    See, cuz of the echo.

  • Buffettgirl

    So wrong… but so funny!

  • James Warren Jones

    And while i never cease to amaze my self with my own thoughts, the first thing (question) that came to my mind after reading this is….BLACK PPL DO SHIT LIKE THIS?????

  • Buffettgirl

    Did Retardo forget to wear his helmet one too many times? “He (allegedly) molested some of his siblings, we had to punish him!” OK – so you knew it was wrong of him to do, but instead of teaching your other NINE kids a lesson and handling it through the judicial system like a solid citizen would do, you lock him in an empty room for two years? THAT MAKES NO FUCKING SENSE ASSHAT!!!!!!!!!!!

  • MrTwoPlums

    DFCS would never have found out had they just hid the kid in there.

  • Wolf_of_Mars

    Yeah, but would you want to let your nose get that close?

  • mean birch

  • mean birch

  • Funny yes but I heard that back in 86..if it bleeds, we can kill it!

  • CallMeMister

    I’m banking on many of the visitors here not having seen Predator, or not remembering it.

    And it was 1987, not 1986. Not to nitpick though 🙂

  • Yeh ok 87 it was. Although I figured almost everyone had seen Predator, it being so epic and all.

  • StinkyMonkeyBallz

    lol, for all you know this kid is a stark raving lunatic. How is it for 2 yrs the school or anyone for the matter, NEVER said anything? They had 10 kids and only 1 was being abused? I dunno, it says they fed him regularly and let him out to use the bathroom. Maybe he did have “stuff” and they had to take it away. Now don’t get me wrong , I’m not heartless but some of these kids these days have lost their damn mind. Now, what they should of done, was have the kid evaluated and sent to an institution, if his behavior was that bad that his parents felt this was the only way. If they didn’t want to subject the kid to a facility they could of managed something with the help of a doctor to cover their asses. No one knows the whole story as yet. I find it hard to believe that only 1 kid outta 10 would be punished this way, if they were straight up abusers. Who knows.

  • Ursula Pine

    arghh I went to the original site linked above to read the article and then got sucked into this seemingly endless slide show of other scary people and their poor kids. Ok I just have to limit myself to so many horror calories a day, it’s what I have to do .

  • CatAtonic99

    Speaking of that, a few years ago I found a scented oil that I could only imagine was supposed to say “Ginger Bread”. Instead it read “Giner Bread”. It obviously made an impact on my brain. Pretty sure I’ll never forget it. I didn’t dare smell it…. just in case it wasn’t a misprint. 😉
