MN Mom Gets Jail For Daughter’s Diaper Punishment

It’s not something you see every day: A girl with a diaper and shaved head running around a neighborhood. But that’s just what happened in suburban Minneapolis.

FOX News Radio’s Jennifer Keiper reports:

Audio clip:

A 12-year old girl fails a class. So, her mother shaves her daughter’s head and forces her to run outside wearing only a diaper and tank top. Neighbors say the girl was crying hysterically.

Stephanie Broten calls it punishment. A judge says it’s an assault on the girl’s dignity. The Fridley, Minnesota mother has to spend the next three months behind bars.

The 12-year-old is now living with her father:

(Father) “She’s going to be happy now that she knows that she can’t be hurt anymore.”

Broten’s boyfriend has pleaded guilty to having a role in the punishment and hitting his stepdaughter repeatedly in the legs with a belt back in 2010. He’ll be sentenced next week.
