WTF News: Mother Jailed For Purposely Burning Son’s Penis and Nipples

A Massachusetts woman was jailed for up to 30 years after burning her 19-year-old son’s penis and nipples with a lighter. The perpetrator, Christine Gelineau, plead guilty to first-degree assault and witness tampering after she forced her son to lie about the abuse but the truth eventually came out.

Via the Mirror:

At a hearing in New Hampshire the youngster described in detail the brutal abuse she subjected him to.

“Dear ex-Mother,” he began as he read from a prepared statement. “What you did to me is unforgivable.

“You beat me, starved me, almost chopped my penis off, threw my clothes away, wouldn’t let me bathe.

“You almost killed me by having me take three (antidepressants) and two muscle-relaxers.

He continued: “Now that I know you’re a complete criminal and only wanted me dead so you could go back to your old life.

“You won’t be able to attend my graduation or see me go on to college, so I wish you goodbye. I hope you realize you have lost everything you had.”

In the affidavit for the case Gelineau admitted to burning the tip of her son’s penis, but claims she only did so after he threatened to have sex with her.

She then put on gloves and grabbed and twisted his penis before holding a lighter to it for several seconds.

The boy suffered second and third degree burns and permanent nerve damage. His mom is a disturbed animal and deserves every bit of that 30 years plus more.
