A 34-year-old mother in Texas is to spend the next 2 years in prison after she injured her young child.
Jennifer Marie Vargas tore a big hole into her 6-year-old son’s scrotum and then tried to fix it with super glue.
Vargas was arrested when the boy’s father returned home from work to find him crying and bleeding.
According to reports:
He rushed him to a hospital, according to an FBI affidavit. Vargas told investigators she was angry at the boy and “grabbed his scrotum and pulled as hard as she could,” the affidavit said.
Vargas said she cleaned the wound with alcohol, tried to fix it with super glue and then stuffed paper towels inside the boy’s underwear to stop the bleeding, it said.
She did not seek medical attention for the child. The case landed in federal court because it occurred on an Army post.
Vargas apologized to U.S. District Judge Orlando Garcia in San Antonio before she was sentenced.
A federal prosecutor told the judge that Vargas and her husband had filed for divorce and her son has recovered.
