    FL - Tai-Ling Gigliotti & Anton Angelo for child abuse, Spring Hill, 2009

    A very sad story . . . What is wrong with people?

    Hernando County Sheriff Richard Nugent called it "barbaric."

    I'm sorry but this is just disgusting. Another poor child basically held captive and horribly beaten?

    We cannot remain a 'civil' & "humane" with people like this as they're inhumane themselves. I say the punishment should fit the crime. Lock them up in a little cell and have other prisoners do the exact same to them. But make the time about 5 times longer. 15 years of torture & beatings sound about right in this case.
    Only my opinion, no one else need agree.

    I don't understand why the woman, who should have been his protector AND played such a large role in his abuse, was give a lesser bond amount than the man. I hope he never has to see either of them again; poor kid!

    FL - Teen kept in bathroom, beaten by adoptive mother and boyfriend

    So very sad.

    Tai-Ling Gigliotti and her boyfriend are acused of aggravated child abuse and false imprisonment.

    SPRING HILL, Fla. ó For three years, neighbors in a quaint, middle-class community scarcely saw the lanky 16-year-old boy who lived with his adoptive mother and her boyfriend.

    Now, they know why: According to authorities, the teen was brutally abused and held captive in his own home. Most recently, he'd been confined to a bathroom, locked from the outside and sealed with a piece of plywood over the window.

    By the time he escaped last week, the Florida boy had a broken forearm and scars, scabs and oozing wounds that investigators say mark years of abuse.

    Hernando County Sheriff Richard Nugent called it "barbaric."

    "This is almost like what John McCain went through in Vietnam when he was a prisoner of war," Nugent said.

    Tai-Ling Gigliotti and her boyfriend, Anton Angelo, were arrested and charged with aggravated child abuse and false imprisonment last week. Gigliotti, 50, was released on a $15,000 bond. Her attorney did not reply to messages seeking comment, and no one answered when a reporter visited her home. Angelo, 45, was released on a $50,000 bond. Available public records don't show if he has an attorney. He refused comment when approached by reporters after his arrest Thursday.

    Authorities are still piecing together the boy's history, but they believe Gigliotti is the boy's aunt, and that she brought him from Taiwan to the United States when he was a young child.

    The teen, whose name was not released because he is an alleged victim of child abuse, told investigators his stepfather was Anthony Gigliotti, who was the Philadelphia Orchestra's principal clarinetist. The stepfather died at age 79 in 2001, before the abuse apparently began.

    That poor boy! It sounds like his stepfather really loved him, and after his death things went downhill from there. He was left with his evil mother, and her evil boyfriend. Thank God he was able to escape. These poor children that are in these situations, i think they fear so much that they will end up dead at the hands of their abusers, that they risk their lives escaping, and by escaping they save their lives.

    God bless this poor boy. I hope that he is able to find the emotional healing that he is going to need to live a normal life. As for the POS that did this to them, I am outraged that their bail was so low! I hope they both rot.
    Happy New Years

    Child abuse trial continued after co-defendant plea deal

    By TONY HOLT

    BROOKSVILLE - The trial of the mother accused of caging her teenage son and abusing him in their Spring Hill home had her trial delayed after her co-defendant accepted a plea deal Thursday.

    Tai-Ling Gigliotti, 51, is charged with two counts of aggravated child abuse. She spent more than an hour Thursday conferring with her attorneys before seeking a continuance.

    Earlier in the day, Gigliotti's live-in companion, Anton Angelo, pleaded guilty in Hernando County Circuit Court to one count of aggravated child abuse. His sentencing hearing was scheduled for April 29.

    He is expected to be sentenced to five years probation.

    The victim, who is now 17 and under foster care, told Circuit Judge Jack Springstead that Angelo, on numerous occasions, tried to protect him from his mother.
    ................................
    Brown told the judge Gigliotti was willing to waive her right to a speedy trial given the "substantial change" in the case when Angelo entered his plea.

    Springstead agreed and said the defendant would have been in an "untenable position" had the trial gone forward next week.

    The victim was the adopted son of Gigliotti and her late husband, Anthony Gigliotti. He died in 2001 after a battle with cancer.

    Anthony Gigliotti was a famed clarinet player who performed for nearly a half-century with the Philadelphia Orchestra.

    Tai-Ling Gigliotti's other attorney, John H. Feiner, said a month after her arrest that her son was a "sociopath" and had lied to authorities.

    What we are doing is just a drop in the ocean.
    But if that drop was not in the ocean,
    I think the ocean would be less because of that missing drop.

    Five years probation?
    Jesus not only wept, he is currently still weeping.

    ETA: I'm glad that the guy "Tried to protect" him. But that didn't include calling the authorities or taking him for help. Five years probation isn't enough. MOO.

    Wow. I know who he is. The deceased father that is. Not personally but he was famous here. He went to Curtis. Played with our orchestra for years.

    The kid is a sociopath? Well maybe you would be if ya got locked in a bathroom for all that time and had to escape.

    How sad is that. I'm including a link about the boy's father. I hope that is alright.

    OMG. This is a very, very charged case. It's obvious a much higher bond should have been set for her for brutalizing and torturing a child for YEARS!

    And I really hope the wild allegations she's making about the boy are not true. What a mess all around.

    Jury hears conflicting testimony in Hernando child abuse case

    BROOKSVILLE - Former police detective Vern Blevins looked at the graphic photographs and shook his head.
    He didn't think the victim's injuries on his legs and buttocks came from a piece of wood.
    There were too many scratches, he said. Blevins thought it looked more like something a bicyclist or motorcyclist would get during a fall along an asphalt street.
    "They're not consistent with blunt force trauma with a stick," Blevins said of the victim's injuries.
    It looked more like "road rash," he said.
    Defense attorney Jimmy Brown asked whether he was sure.
    "I have no doubt," Blevins replied.
    Blevins was one of several defense witnesses called Friday in the trial for accused child abuser Tai-Ling Gigliotti, 51, of Spring Hill.
    She is accused of caging her late husband's adopted son in her bathroom and beating him. If convicted on both counts of aggravated child abuse, she faces up to 60 years in prison.
