Mom, Dad Convicted Of Assaulting 14 Year Old Daughter

Spanked her for 'sexting'

A BC couple has been convicted of Assault with a Weapon after spanking their 14 year old daughter for sexting with her boyfriend. Dad caught her sending nude pictures online and whacked two or three times on the backside, through her pyjamas, with a plastic hockey stick. When mom got home and caught wind of it, she used a skipping rope to punish the girl. When the girl showed up at school with lacerations and bruises, her friends told administrators, who called police. Calling the punishment punitive and degrading, the judge said while any reasonable parent would be concerned about their teen sending nude pictures, thinking responding to such acts with a spanking would educate the girl is simply not believable or acceptable.
