Florida couple makes child sleep outside

Parents arrested for making 6-year-old sleep outside for days with little to eat

These two douche bags, John Haley, 47, and his wife, Stephanie Haley, 41, were charged with felony  child neglect because they thought it was appropriate to make their 6 year old son sleep outside on the porch.  Their reasoning for this cruel punishment was because he was stealing and eating to much food! He was made to sleep outside with no blankets or food and went ta a neighbors house at 2am. It had dropped to the 50′s and the child was shaking and hungry. Thankfully the neighbor took him in, gave him a warm blanket and some food and called the cops!!! Kudos to the neighbor for stepping in and being brave!!
The child told of his horrific living conditions to the officers. He was made to sleep outside on the back porch and only given rice for lunch and supper unless the rice ran out then he was given lettuce. The child also told officers that if he was not on the porch then he was locked in the garage and only allowed in the house if he had to use the bathroom. It’s reported that the officers said there was no bed or anything suitable for the child to sleep on outside in 50 degree weather. So sad!!
After talking to the child, the police went to his house and asked the parents if they knew where he was. The parents claimed he was in his room asleep and tried to act shocked when the officers informed them otherwise. The dad, John, then admitted to making the child sleep out side for stealing and eating to much, as punishment and he saw nothing wrong with this form of punishment!  OK, first of all, the child is a human being, a flesh from John and Stephanie’s flesh, how in the hell can you find this acceptable punishment for your child?? Second, how in the hell can the child steal food from his own home?? Eat too much…really….was that possible on rice and lettuce?? I just don’t get how people can do stuff like this to their children!!
Both ass hats were arrested and placed in jail with out bond…..but they have a bed, blankets, cable, and 3 square meals a day so no biggie!  Here’s an idea, why not make them sleep outside with no blankets and only give them chewed up left over inmate scraps for supper???
Guess what…there were 6 other kids in the home, from ages 1-15, and none of them endured what this little boy endured! I don’t get it, how the hell do you treat one better than the other?? Those children are in custody of DSS.
Thanks to all who sent in this tip.

Moronic Mommies

Posted on by 40 comments

I know we all enjoyed Danielle’s post about Antoinette and her ass kicking skills, unfortunately Antoinettes are not the norm on BB. I’d love to be  posting another story like Antoinette’s but instead I have another group of Moronic Mommies.

Crystal Dawn Craig and Amy Elizabeth Lam

Amy Lam and Crystal Craig

August 26th eight children were taken into protective custody and their mothers charged with felony counts of child neglect.  Yes… I said mothers, as in more than one.

A 2-year-old girl found wandering naked in convenience store parking lot was able to point police in the direction of her home.  When the police went to the home to investigate how it came to be that the little streaker had escaped unnoticed, they were greeted with a home filled with filth and eight children.

Deputies immediately noticed a strong odor of rotten food and animal waste.  The rotten food was in the kitchen and the animal waste in several areas of the home.

The eight children were taken into protective custody and later released to their grandmothers.  Also taken into protective custody, of Animal Control that is, were seven dogs and two kittens.

Crystal Dawn Craig (29), mother of 3 of the children, was charged with three felony counts of child neglect.

Amy Elizabeth Lam (38), mother of 5 of the children, was charged with five felony counts of child neglect, failure to maintain her premises and duty if an owner to provide food and water.

Both are being held without bond.

Esmeralda Trejo 

Esmeralda Trejo (22) was arrested and charged with two counts of endangering a child, after she left her two daughters 4 and 5-years-old alone to go to the bar.  A neighbor hearing the girls crying in the apartment contacted her roommate who came home to find the girls alone.  She would text Trejo and inquire about her where-a-bouts to which she replied at the bar, be home soon.  Ten hours later and no Trejo insight the roommate called police.

The 5-year-old suffered burns to the hands trying to cook food for her and her sister.

Trejo was arrested and held on a $10,000 bond.

The sisters were taken into custody by CPS.

Jennifer Torres 

Jennifer Torres was arrested and charged with four counts of child neglect in June after police found her four children living in deplorable conditions.

Police were going to Torres’ house to investigate allegations her 11-year-old had molested another child and found an apartment full of filth and fecal matter.  Fecal matter was on the walls and floors and knives were on the ground.  The children were EATING moldy food off the floor, the same floor where the fecal matter was located, old food covered dirty dishes and there was spoiled milk in the fridge.

CPS told police that Torres has two substantiated cases against her already regarding her children, ranging in age form 4 to 11-years-old.

Torres was arrested on four counts of child neglect.  Her 11-year-old was taken to a Juvenile Detention Center on a lewdness charge.

The remaining children were placed in emergency foster care.

Disgusting Dads

Posted on by 12 comments

Since lately, I have been doing regular posts about Momsters, I thought it would be an interesting switch to have a look at some Disgusting Dads.

Anthony DeSimone

First up we have Anthony DeSimone, who as taken into custody on August 1st.  Anthony has been accused of buying drugs, while having his 5-year-old son in the car.

Reports say police saw DeSimone get into a parked car and hand over cash in exchange for cocaine.  When he returned to his car, with his son still inside, he was arrested.  Police seized .5 grams of cocaine and 3.5 grams of marijuana.

He was charged with possession of both drugs.

His son was released to a family member.

Errick Noe Rios 

Errick Noe Rios has been charged with one felony count of first-degree criminal sexual conduct, two felony counts of third degree assault and one felony count of domestic assault by strangulation.  Who did he assault you ask, well a 4-month-old baby, of course…why else would he be featured here?

Police were called to check on the welfare of an infant on July 25th, when they arrived Rios allowed them in and they found the baby covered in layers of blankets and clothing in a hot, muggy room and sporting facial bruises, a bite mark, scabs on its chest and back and finger mark bruises on its tummy.  Mother Effer!

After giving the usual array of excuses for the bruising, Rios admitted to hitting the baby because he would not stop crying, punching him in the mouth and picking him up by his torso so hard he’d leave marks.  He also admitted him and his wife and taken the baby to hospital in the past due to his abusive behavior and that it needed to stop.  Really genius, you think?

Rios also admitted to becoming angry with the baby the night of his birth and hit him four or five times and squeezed his stomach. He went on to further to confess to biting the baby’s face and putting his little mouth over and faucet and turning it on.  It doesn’t end there, he also admitted to engaging in criminal sexual conduct with the baby.

An examination showed the baby had three cracked ribs in addition to bruising and scratching.

If convicted Rios faces more than 40 years in prison and $65,000 in fines.

Maurice Brown Sr.

Maurice Brown Sr. back in court

Maurice Brown Jr. went missing on July 1st, two days later his body was found in a dumpster a few miles from his father’s apartment and where he “allegedly” disappeared from.

Maurice Brown Sr. told police he fell asleep for a few hours and when he awoke his son was gone and the door was open.  He claimed his son was kidnapped.  However, a witness told police they saw Brown Sr. leaving his apartment with a child draped over his shoulder and walking towards a parking lot between 7 and 8 pm that Sunday.

Police found evidence of spattered and pooled blood in the man’s bathroom, consistent with a beating.  Detectives said “Based upon the age of the missing child, the blood evidence in the bathroom, which is consistent with blunt force trauma, the affiant has probable cause to believe the child sustained serious bodily injury.”

The ME determined cause of death as blunt force trauma.

Brown Sr. was originally charged with child neglect or endangerment; those charges have since been upgraded to first-degree murder.

R.I.P. Maurice, your sweet smile will surely be missed.

Thanks to all the tipsters.


Robin Pfeiff, Not a Great Driver, or Mother

Posted on by 7 comments

Robin Pfeiff had cocaine alcohol in system during I-95 wreck that severely injured kids 

Oh Robin Pfeiff….You make yourself look like such a douche in so many ways, where does one begin?  I’m gonna start with Monday, April 3rd.  That is when Ms.Pfieff was arrested for a crash she caused on March 8, which sent 2 elderly people in another car to the hospital. Her 5-year-old son (just one of the three kids she had in tow), was ejected out of the Jeep Cherokee that she overturned a handful of times, he, along with his 4-year-old sister were air-lifted to another hospital because of the critical injuries they sustained, and Pfeiff with her 9-month-old were taken to another. But it wasn’t just a freak accident on I-95 that day… Ms. Pfeiff was driving like a rockstar to fullest.  And when I say driving, I mean badly…and when I say rock star, I mean higher than Whitney Houston at a Grammy party.

Why do I say that? Well, 4 hours after the crash blood was taken and Pfeiff tested positive for cocaine, and had a 0.094 BAC (.08 is the legal limit)…so she had some sober up time before the test, and that time didn’t save her. Pfeiff was hammered at the time of the crash to say the least.

Now, one would think that a near death experience of her and her babies, would make this broad rethink her “Party Rocking” actions, you know, cause of all her kids being severely injured because of them?….Not Pfeiff. Five days after the crash she was visiting her son in the intensive care unit, where he had a fractured femur and clavicle, bruised lungs, cerebral contusion and other injuries, an officer came to check up on the boy and reported Ms. Pfeiff to smell of alcohol, have impaired speech, and bloodshot eyes. Way to make a change, Pfeiff! And the boy told the nurses at the hospital that mommies favorite drink was wine….Oh snap, don’t you hate when your kids rat on ya?

The very well marinated Pfieff has some serious issues, I just wish to gawd, she didn’t have kids to hurt while going thru them….It seems she’s had a few ups and down in her time, seeing that when this crash occurred, she was on her way to the Federal Penitentiary to visit the father of her children. But that’s not a fucking excuse to put your kids in harms way!  I hate when people drink and drive, or blow rails and drive, but you’ve got to really save a bit more of that hate for the selfish bastards who do those things with such precious cargo in their care.  Innocent people and innocent children were hurt because of Robin Pfeiff, she’s lucky she didn’t kill anyone.  This woman said she wasn’t doing drugs and had only 3 glasses of wine before the crash…total bullshit. Blood tests don’t make up shit, people do. And she also said that she always secures her kids in the car….Oh really? So, then why was it noted that officers found only ONE child seat, for the THREE kids? Maybe old Pfeiff “saw” three car seats, after having her favorite drink, but then she would have “saw” 9 kids…. and that’s when pink elephants show up doing the hokey pokey…which may or may not have happened.

Marinated Momma faces charges including DUI impairment/serious bodily injury and three counts of child neglect.

“It was a joke.”

Posted on by 16 comments

Mother puts bag over infants head as joke  

The woman above, sporting the “I hate the world face” is, Courtney Shanvice McBride (20). Courtney faces charges of child neglect, child abuse and intentional act that could result in physical/mental injury, after she sent a picture of her 5-month-old daughter in the garbage can with a plastic bag over head to the baby’s father.  No worries though it was just a “joke”.

A “joke”?  I’m not sure this is the definition of a “joke” in my book and apparently the baby’s father agrees.  While out of town, Saturday, the baby’s father received the picture via text message and contacted his sister who then called police.

While being questioned by police about the situation, McBride consistently said it was a “joke” and tried to justify her actions by telling them she did not tie the bag and quickly took the picture.  Well… ok then, not a big deal… here’s your baby you’re free to go.  WTH!

According to the affidavit, authorities say they found McBride had intentionally put the bag over the baby’s eyes, mouth and nose, which restricted her breathing.  She then put the baby in a garbage can lined with another bag. The affidavit further stated, “It is believed that McBride’s intentional actions should reasonably expect to cause harm to the infant.”

Who’s laughing now Courtney?  Not so funny, huh.


3-year-old suffering from hypothermia and internal injuries, mom’s boyfriend arrested

3-year-old hospitalized for Hypothermia, Mother’s boyfriend arrested 

I can’t find a whole lot on this one, so I will share what I have been able to find.

At 6:20 pm on Sunday, January 22nd, police were called to Renown Medical Center for reports of suspected child abuse.  The victim (3-years-old) was in a hypothermic state and suffering internal injuries when he arrived at the hospital.

The child was in the sole care of his mother’s boyfriend, Daniel Basham (33), while she was at work.

Basham has been charged with neglect.

The lil’ man is being treated in the Pediatric ICU.

Boy, 4, Shoots Self with Gun – Mom and Boyfriend Behind Bars

Fayetteville couple charged with child neglect

Couple Charged In 4-Year-Old’s Shooting

On August 6, 2011, 26 year-old Qunisha, more like Cuntisha Edwards’, 4-year-old son shot himself in the hip with a gun. Police said they were notified of the bullet lodged in the poor boys hip on October 5, 2011, when the boy was taken to the hospital because of difficulty walking. Six weeks this boy was forced to walk with a bullet lodged inside of his hip. I can only imagine the pain the child felt everyday when he had to sit, walk, stand, or wanted to run but couldn’t.

The boy’s mother turner herself in to authorities. She is being charged with negligent child abuse resulting to serious bodily injury, failure to store firearm to protect minor and contributing to the delinquency of a juvenile. Her bail was set at $100,000 secured. Her boyfriend, Vincent Massey, 25, also turned himself in to authorities. He is being charged with the same as Edwards, but also got charged with possession of a firearm by a felon. His bail was set at $185,000 secured.

Silver lining is the boy is alive, but his current condition is unknown, as are the effects of the bullet being inside his body for so long. Where the child is currently staying is also unknown.

Mother charged with neglecting 11 of her 12 children.

Mother charged with gross neglect of her 11 children

In November 2010, Tisha Monique Gardner (31) moved herself and her 11 children to Madison, WI, a week after they arrived; Madison police began receiving allegations of child neglect and endangerment.  Dane County Human Services began investigating her after an incident on Nov. 11th, in which it was determined a loaded shotgun was left accessible to her children, who ranged in age from 4-months-old to 14-years-old.

Dane County CPS began to work with Gardner in late November, but their concerns for her family increased as she was often found sleeping during their visits. The house was the usual cesspool, prescription pill bottles and cigarette butts littered the floor, the infant twins were found to have garbage bags on the floor for beds and her 8-year-old son suffered from such severe tooth decay he will likely need dentures by the age of 16. The children were left without adequate supervision and she was often in such a stupor she couldn’t hold her infant twins without dropping them. Holy fucking shit woman!  Stop having kids if you don’t want to take of them 31-years-old with 12 children (her oldest 15-year-old Shelton was killed stealing scrap metal).

Gardner’s children (of school age) rarely if ever attended school, they had 30% attendance rate.  She had contact with Milwaukee’s CPS on 11 different occasions prior to moving to Madison and she refused all services offered her.  A Milwaukee social worker said this in a report about Gardner, “she lacks sufficient skill, knowledge and/or motivation to obtain and maintain sufficient resources and supervision for her young children.”  Really…ya think?  School Officials in Madison provided the children with winter clothing.

Anyhow, Tisha has been charged with 15 counts of child neglect, including 4 that are felonies alleging bodily harm.  She stood mute in front of the court during her initial appearance; the judge entered a not guilty plea on her behalf.  August 11th a bench warrant was issued after she failed to appear for a court hearing.

No word on who has the children, I am going to assume they are not with her.

Thanks to Amanda for the tip.

3-year-old tries to escape his life… 3 times before he gets help


Toddler wandered out of filthy apartment three times

The two ugly mugs you see staring back at you belong to George Howard and his main squeeze Lucy Johnson.  They are gracing us with their presence today because they have a tendency to crash out while leaving their children unattended.  One of their children despises his living conditions so much has tried to escape 3 times and at least once he’s been nekkid.  Nice!

It appears that on August 1st their son decided today would be the day…finally he’d escape and not be brought back.  He left behind his little brother, pledging to return to get him, no not really but the image of a 3 and 1-year-old plotting an escape from the shit parents they have been born to kind of makes me giggle.  Anyhow, he found his way to a nearby restaurant, where a police officer happened to be dining.  What Luck!

The officer took the little guy home and found an unlocked apartment and the 1-year-old little guy inside.  After announcing their presence several times with no response they began to clear the apartment.  They would find not one but both “parents” asleep in the back bed room.  Both Howard and Johnson said they were not aware their son has escaped or how long he’d been gone.  Here’s a suggestion for ya mom and dad… stay the fuck awake when your kids are awake… just sayin’.

The apartment was the usual filth hole we read about here, soiled clothes and empty beer bottles on the floor.  Police contact DCFS and left the children with their parents.  Um, excuse me… they left them there!  It gets better, when the caseworker showed up the NEXT day, she found the 3-year-old once again making a run for it and in the parking lot nekkid and barefoot and once again he was returned to his parents.  Hey professional adults, when a 3-year-old has enough sense to get the hell out, follow his lead and take him the fuck out.  How many failed escapes does he need to make before you get a hint?  Shit!

Ok, so a brief recap the little guy has tried to escape the filth and shit parents he has on August 1st and 2nd and was returned and left with his “parents.”

August 25th rolls around and…wait for it… the little makes a run for it AGAIN, he goes back to the same restaurant, this time he has on an adult t-shirt and no shoes.  When he was returned home AGAIN, Johnson answered the door and once AGAIN told police she and Howard had been sleeping.  Police believe the little guy made his escape this time through an open window in his room.  His room, I might add that was covered in human feces.  There were several dirty diapers on the floor, dried feces in the carpet and cock roaches.  Do we get it now?  The baby at 3-years-old wants the fuck out of there, by any means necessary!  Gawd Damn it, take him and his brother out!

Howard and Johnson were arrested and charged with child neglect.

DCF has taken temporary custody of the children.  The toddler was hospitalized with swollen legs and blisters on his feet.

These two mother fuckers are nasty ass pigs, but what is more disturbing than that is the fact that not once but twice trained professionals returned these children to these people.
