Fridley, MN (WGN) — A couple from Minnesota will stand trial, for forcing a 12-year-old girl to wear a diaper in public.
38-year old Stephanie Broten and her boyfriend, 34-year-old Darnell Landrum, say they wanted to punish Broten’s daughter for getting bad grades at school. So they shaved her head, dressed her in a tank top and a “depends” adult diaper and locked her out of the house.
Police say, the couple couldn’t understand why they were arrested. They say it’s their right to choose how to discipline their child.
Child protection workers removed the girl and three siblings from the home.
Broten and Landrum are both charged with malicious punishment of a child.
