A woman in Kissimmee, Florida, was arrested Thursday and now faces child abuse charges after authorities discovered she was using a stun gun with three young children in a punishment she called “the electric chair.”
According to a report by the Orlando Sentinel, Letina Smith is not the mother of the children. The 7- and 8-year-old boys and 9-year-old girl belong to Smith’s cousin, but they have been in her care for an unknown reason and an unknown amount of time.
The punishment was discovered by Osceola County school officials when one of the children got into trouble and begged the school not to inform Smith of her misbehavior because she was scared of the “electric chair.”
