The orthodox Christian mother regretted her nine children in a terrible way
A nine-year-old mother was detained, punishing her children by placing bricks on her head and eating garbage from the sink.
A 52-year-old woman, who could not prove her identity on legitimate grounds, did not express her feelings because she was convicted at the Auckland District Court for having used her child for 17 years.
Some children were five years old when they suffered long and cruel punishments.
The punishment referred to the refusal of food, the wearing of a sign saying “Liar”, and dipping into the pool in winter.
They walked in circles for over 800 meters for hours before vomiting or becoming unconscious. Their sins were usually as simple as dropping something on the ground.
Throughout the trial, six children presented evidence and reported traumas that still occur as a result of abuse.
This exploitation was felt for the first time in 2017, when the five eldest sons left the house.
The woman declared the charges innocent, but replaced the pleas during the trial after the children began to prove it.
Her lawyer, Phil Hamlin, told the court that the children were at the center of his client and she tried to do so right next to her.
Judge Nevin Dawson said that the cruelty of women against children can not be solved and that they are hurt by a “conservative Christian lifestyle”.
The mother was detained for four years in prison for six atrocities against children and two abuses against children, one of whom was a spokeswoman.
