MN - Man gets 7 months for beating 5 children, leaving them scarred
Note that's 7 months in *jail*, not prison.
When will we begin to value our children more than this? How many beaten, brutalized, raped, murdered babies and children will it take until we change the laws?
Duluth man gets 7 months for beating 5 children
Associated Press - May 22, 2010 7:24 PM ET
A Duluth man convicted of using belts and cords to physically abuse five children has been sentenced to seven months in jail.
Twenty-8-year-old Jason L. Wiggins pleaded guilty in April to two felony counts of malicious punishment of a child resulting in substantial bodily harm. As part of a plea agreement, three similar charges were dismissed.
Wiggins was accused of abusing five kids between ages 4 and 13. Prosecutors say some children had permanent scars on their legs. The 13-year-old said she was beaten about 10 times per month.

The prosecution should be ashamed for cutting this garbage deal.

This is horrible! Sadly, we will probably read about this man again and again until he has committed murder and only then will we see an outrage from the DA and public!!!
