SANILAC COUNTY, MI (WNEM) -

Just a few days after WNEM.com published a story about a child seen on video being force fed, authorities say they are moving to file charges against his mother.

The YouTube video shows a kid screaming as his mother puts spoonfuls of food in his mouth.

A detective with the Sanilac County Sheriff's Department said the boy was 2 years old at the time the video was shot. He said a relative shot the video.

The Sanilac County prosecutor told TV5 he plans to file fourth-degree child abuse and domestic violence against a child charges. Those charges are expected to be filed either late Tuesday or sometime Wednesday.

"When I got a chance to witness the video, I was appalled," said Vera Harrison on Friday, Director of the CAN Council Child Abuse and Prevention.

If the mother is found guilty on the child abuse charge, she could be sentenced to between one and five years of probation. If she's found guilty on the domestic violence charge, she could get up to 93 days in jail or a $500 fine.

Sadly. the probation sounds harsher and would help her more. $500 fine, that's it? And 93 days in jail is bullshit. She needs constant supervision when she is with her kids. Obviously someone saw her abuse the child before if they were suspicious enough to tape her doing it.

You're right. Thats what I was thinking as well. But I bet they will file more charges. And itll be in the system. She will lose the kids.

I agree. I think she needs parenting classes and supervised visits for quite a while. And I think she should get as many days in jail AND years of probation as possible.
