    MS - Festus Oguhebe for child abuse, Byram, 2006

    JACKSON, Miss. — A college business professor who allegedly punished one of his children by covering the boy with ants and putting pepper juice in his eyes has been sentenced to two years in prison for child abuse.

    Hinds County Circuit Judge L. Breland Hilburn sentenced Alcorn State University professor Festus Oguhebe on Monday to five years in prison with three years suspended and two to serve.

    Oguhebe, a Byram resident, pleaded no contest in October to one count of child abuse. With a no contest plea, a defendant is not admitting guilt, but is not contesting the charges.

    The judge allowed Oguhebe to remain free on bond until Jan. 5.

    Oguhebe, a native of Nigeria, was arrested in March 2005 on five counts of felony child abuse, stemming from the bizarre punishment methods he allegedly used on his 11-year-old son.

    The punishment included "placing him in a bathtub, then putting hot pepper juice in his eyes, on his penis and buttocks; and also by tying his hands behind his back and covering his body with ants," according to court records.

    How sick, vile, disgusting!!

    How could someone do this to a child? Ants and pepper juice? Oh my God! That is unfathomable.
    I hope the poor child isn't emotionally scarred for life.

    What is wrong with people?

    Once again I think that what was done to the child should be done to the person that hurt the child.

    Any reason why this 'man' won't be deported after he's served his paltry sentence?

    Why? Why? Why? Were do people come up with this torture? Instead of inventing new ways to punish your child, why not spend the same amount of time talking to the child and being together? It took so much energy from this man (for lack of a better word) and it could have been spent otherwise. I am so sad for these children.
