The couple have fostered and then adopted four girls – ages 7 to 13 – over the last five years, but have had some disciplinary issues with two of the oldest. When no form of punishment seemed to keep the two in line, the couple visited a behavioral health facility.
It was there that the couple described the issues they have been having with the two girls lying and stealing, and the punishments they have doled out in order to correct them. These punishments included making the older girl live in the backyard naked.
“The 13-year-old daughter was put in the backyard in what they call ‘deep prison,'” Peoria police spokeswoman Amanda Jacinto said. “She would live in the backyard. She would be forced to wear a diaper or sometimes not even a diaper. They would have bathroom facilities out there that involved a bucket.…

APOPKA, FL – Kimberly Honaker, a 48-year-old middle-school teacher, is in more trouble following her arrest on child neglect charges after police say she not only allowed her boyfriend to sexually abuse a 13-year-old girl, but was an active participant.
Police were called by the wife of Honaker’s live-in boyfriend, 58-year-old Robert Pruitt, after she found Facebook messages, texts and emails eluding to having some kind of sexual relationship with the victim. Pruitt moved in with Honaker after his wife kicked him out and, according to police, his old flame allowed Pruitt to continue his sexual relationship with the teen.
This is what lead to Honaker, a sixth-grade teacher at Apopka Middle School, initially being arrested on child neglect charges over the weekend. She was re-arrested on Tuesday after police interviewed Pruitt and he admitted to his sexual relationship with the teen and the fact that Honaker condoned it. Oh, and that Honaker took part in sexually abusing the teen as well.
Honaker has now been charged with lewd or lascivious molestation and use of a child in a sexual performance.…

Officers responding to a report of an intoxicated driver found Stumler’s daughter screaming in the street. They also found Stumler’s still-running vehicle with some fresh damage to the front end.

According to police, Hoskins lived with his father and his father’s girlfriend. On Sunday, Hoskins was left to take care of his father’s girlfriend’s three children – ages 5-years-old, 3-years-old, and 4-months-old.

OKLAHOMA CITY, OK – Laura Jean Shoulders was sentenced to 27 years behind bars after the 46-year-old pleaded guilty to making videos of herself performing sex acts on a one-year-old girl and sharing the videos on the Internet.
According to court records, Shoulders met a man in Oklahoma through a Craigslist ad in 2012. The pair exchanged messages that eventually led to Shoulders sending the man videos she recorded with her cell phone that showed her performing sex acts on a one-year-old girl she was babysitting.

Shoulders was arrested in December and would plead guilty to producing child pornography in February. This past Wednesday, Shoulders was sentenced to 27 years in prison without the possibility of parole. She got lucky, as she was initially looking at a possible 90 years behind bars.
You would think that women so desperate for a man’s attention that they’re willing to chow down on a 1-year-old’s vagina would be a rare thing, but in the last few years we’ve had several stories of women who’ve recorded themselves sexually abusing children for the enjoyment of men they’ve met online.…

On one of these occasions, Candelaria got aggravated with the 3-year-old after she took a dump in the bathtub. In response, Candelaria forced the girl to eat the feces.
The fact that this happened in a bathtub makes me gag a bit louder because my brother shit in the tub when we were little and I will never forget my brother cackling like a madman as the soggy turd flaked apart in the water. *shudder*
Anyway, when the children were back home with their mother, they informed her of what had happened.…
PHOENIX, AZ – Corey McCarthy has been arrested for child abuse after he was captured on surveillance video throwing his 23-month-old daughter into a swimming pool as a form of punishment.
In the video, McCarthy can be seeing chucking Mia out into the pool as a woman swims after her. His reason? It was to teach the toddler not to throw things in the pool… like the puppy she dropped in the pool that later died.
According to the child’s mother, Samantha, she and McCarthy have dated off an on for the last ten years and have two children together. She says that McCarthy has not played a big role in Mia’s life and was just babysitting her on the day of the incident.
According to Samantha, the video you are seeing only shows part of what McCarthy did to punish the toddler.
“You see him taunting her, like throwing her like he’s gonna, then he’s not, throwing her like he’s gonna, then he’s not,” Samantha said. “What people don’t know is also in the beginning of the video, he hoses her down with a water hose to kind of torture her that way.”
Police decided to charge McCarthy with child abuse because in the state of Arizona, child abuse includes unreasonable discipline – like throwing a child in a swimming pool as a form of punishment.…

The parents of Ian Nelson were outraged when they were provided surveillance footage that showed their son, Ian, as he is confronted by his teacher, Barb Williams, as he walks out of the school bathroom at Riverdale Local Schools.
Williams can be seen first grabbing Ian and pinning him against the wall before grabbing him by the face and then picking him up off the floor by his shirt. The video ends as she drags him by tharm into the bathroom.
There’s no information on exactly why Williams was so angry at the kid, but the school ended up suspending Williams for 10 days. As you can probably understand, Ian’s parents aren’t satisfied with that response – especially since there are only 10 days left in the school year.

Perquimans County, NC – Police in North Carolina have charged six brothers and their parents after a 16-year-old girl alleges she was sexually abused by them for a decade.
Deputies say they have been investigating this case for over a year. It started in 2012 when one of the brothers confided to his pastor that he and his five brothers had molested a girl. He then agreed to tell the Perquimans County Sheriff’s Office of the crime in an effort to save his soul.

Detectives from North Carolina went to Colorado and interviewed the girl, now 16, for about eight hours. This interview led to the arrest of the six brothers.…
