In Muskogee, Okla. federal prosecutor Mike Littlefield, 57, and his wife, Dawn, 38, are charged with abusing their two children. Mike is accused hitting their 10-year-old son and beating their 17-year-old daughter. Dawn is charged with beating the daughter.
Last winter, Mike threw their daughter to the floor, pulled her hair, and beat her head against a metal bed frame. He also put his knee in her side and smashed her head against the floor. The girl was bruised about her head and body. In June and October 2006, Mike hit the boy about his face, back and body and left bruises.
Even though his wife Dawn was on probation for child abuse, he didn’t stop her from smacking their kids around. Dawn is charged with domestic abuse, assault and battery, second and subsequent offense for dragging the 17-year-old from the back to the front seat of a car and beating her hard enough to leave bruises. Great, a repeat offender.
Dawn’s attorney says it will become clear that neither of them have done anything that wasn’t in the best interest of their children. What a joke.
