Ohio Couple Admits To Keeping Their Children In Duct Taped Plastic Boxes
It’s one thing to punish children when they act a fool so that they know not to do it again, but this Ohio couple took it entirely too far.

An eastern Ohio couple pleaded guilty Tuesday to child endangerment charges after they forced their three children into plastic storage boxes sealed with duct tape and leaving only a square cut in the top for air.
A prosecutor said the children, ages 5, 6 and 8, were crammed into the boxes on June 16, 2012 as punishment while the parents went to the grocery store and left two uncles at home with them. A friend of the family arrived at the Steubenville home, got the children out of the boxes and contacted police.
Authorities said the children were in the boxes for about 15 to 30 minutes, with square holes cut out of the lids to expose the top part of their faces.
Their father, James Taylor, pleaded guilty to two counts of child endangerment and one count of unlawful restraint. The plea deal calls for a year in jail. His wife, Samantha Taylor, the children’s stepmother, pleaded guilty to the same charges and will likely serve two years of probation.
These poor thangs. Glad to know they at least made it out of this mess without suffering any long term physical harm.
