Shocking pictures of toddler taped to a wall by his 'high' mother and her boyfriend

Post by ufercoffy on 01.10.10 9:36

These are the first heartbreaking photos of a boy being subjected to unbelievable cruelty by his mother and her boyfriend.
The 22-month-old toddler was stuck to a wall in his home by industrial duct tape after his mother had been 'partying' with her lover at her home near Lincoln, Nebraska.
Jayla Hamm,18, even held her helpless son against the wall while boyfriend Corde Honea,19, taped his wrists, legs and body.
Hamm and Honea then took these pictures of the crying child and further taunted him by taping his favourite drinking cup just outside his reach.


Disgusting: The boy's arms are restrained behind his back, his hands taped to the wall. His face is obscured in this image but police say he was terrified




Further restraint: Mother Jayla Hamm and boyfriend Corde Honea taped the boy's body and legs as well - with the adhesive making direct contact with his skin

The couple's callous actions were only discovered when Hamm showed the pictures to a friend, who immediately alerted police.
Police then seized the digital camera containing the photos of the boy.

The face of the child has been purposefully obscured in these images but police said he was visibly distressed and crying while pinned to the wall with the adhesive tape.
One picture shows him straining to release himself from his bonds, his arms bent back in an uncomfortable position as his hands are taped to the wall.
Another shows the boy now strapped to the wall with tape across his little body - with one strip of the strong adhesive tape coming into direct contact with the skin on his legs.
Police said the couple, who were 'were high after a night of partying', taped the child to the wall for their entertainment - not to discipline him.


Grinning for the camera: Hamm and Honea pose with the toddler as he struggles with the tape binding his hands




Further cruelty: Hamm and Honea added to the little boy's torment when they taped his favourite drinking cup on the wall... just out of his reach

The shocking case follows a viral that swept the internet of another, unnamed little girl duct taped to the wall.

Judge Paul Korslund sentenced Hamm to 10 days in jail and two years' probation.
He told her: 'What makes it shocking in particular is there's an expectation that it's a matter of common sense that a parent would protect her child from humiliation and abuse.'

The boy has been placed in state custody.
Honea was sentenced to 36 to 60 months in prison for intentional child abuse. He was also jailed for 24 to 60 months for a separate charge of burglary and 12 to 24 months for possession of a stolen firearm.


Doing the rounds: This viral image of another unnamed baby girl duct taped to a wall has been circulating on the internet.




Before sentencing, Honea told the court: 'I can’t fully believe what happened on those days. I do take full responsibility. I do find it even more troubling that I can do that.'
The prosecutor in the case said: '[The boy] was terrified. You can see that from looking at the pictures.'
Police chief Bruce Lang said: 'They did it because they thought it was funny.'

Shocking? No, unfortunately we are hearing and reading about these happenings on a regular basis, they no longer shock most

Despicable & despairing? Yes, I hope the child is never returned to their care.

Why are the Courts so lenient on this sort of thing, 10 days in jail for what she has done is nowhere near adequate punishment for what this evil individual has done? Really hope the little boy is not returned to her but have a sinking feeling that, once she has completed a couple of parenting skills courses, Social Services will decide it is in his best interests to be with this monster of a mother.

Their treatment of that child caused psychologically adverse effect on that child that will last and stay with the child throughout the child's life. So, yes, 10 days is nothing, and far too inadequate to deter her or let her learn her lesson. The authority should do to her what she did to the child so that she could learn the effect of her action.

Parental skills course is utterly useless if parents have psychological problems.
Maybe parental skills can be learned over time, but often times abuse situation at home is not strictly down to lack of parental skills. Disturbed mental attitude, parent's temperament and social background often imposed on child cannot be removed, and unless the child is removed from such environment, the child will always be at certain risks.

If the child is return to her, she must be placed under constant supervision by social service. They should make her report to social service daily and make sure social service talk to the child as well to ensure his welfare is protected.

I agree aiyoyo, parenting skills courses are especially effective in the cases of young, feckless parents who, for whatever reasons, need some guidance and help. This beast of a woman (I cannot bring myself to refer to her as a mother) would certainly not benefit from such courses as she clearly has serious phycological problems that need to be addressed urgently, she should never be allowed near the little boy ever again.

Yet again a lenient sentence for cruelty to a child!

the judge should be investigated why he gave such a lenient sentence.
