  • child abuse? i'm not sure on the exact term, but that's pretty close to anything he'd be charged with.

  • probably just because he has NO relation to the 4 yr old is why he got charged but i dunno what it would be

  • I've popped my kid in the mouth and i'm fairly sure hubby has once or twice and if BF was the only father figure this kid knew he should of been allowed to punish the kid.

  • Whatever the charge, I hope a cellmate decides to get "cozy" with him.
