Woman Who Burned Son's Penis Among Other Torture Acts Gets Up To 30 Years

Story here. Excerpt:

'A New Hampshire woman has been sentenced to nine to 30 years after pleading guilty in the torture of her 18-year-old son.

Christine Gelineau, a 53-year-old from Concord, reached an agreement with prosecutors Thursday, pleading guilty to first-degree assault and witness tampering, CBS Connecticut reported.

The teen, who is now 19, has two other alleged abusers he has yet to face. In court, he spoke to his now "ex-mother."

"Dear ex-Mother,” he began, reading from a statement as his abuser sat sobbing nearby in an orange prison jumpsuit, the Concord Monitor reported. “What you did to me is unforgivable. You beat me, starved me, almost chopped my penis off, threw my clothes away, wouldn’t let me bathe. You almost killed me by having me take three [antidepressants] and two muscle-relaxers."
Daniel Tyler Cantrell, 20, and the victim's 29-year-old cousin, Amy Nason, are also charged with torturing the man.

Among the beatings and burning, the victim was also pressured to drink urine, eat worms, dish soap, and feces, according to court records. Cantrell is also accused of breaking the man's ankle and putting a lit cigarette out on his neck.

Authorities were first alerted to the abuse in April when a 12-year-old girl, staying with the daughter of Nason, alerted officials at the Division of Children, Youth and Families after seeing the abuse.'
