Houston Mom That Tased & Beat Her 5-Year-Old Son Charged With Felony
A Houston, Texas woman was charged with felony child abuse after her young son was seen with bruises and welts on his face and arm. 

The boy, now 6-years-old, revealed that his mother had used a taser on him back in November.

The 27-year-old was initially being investigated after her now six-year-old son was seen with a bruise on the left side of his face, welts on both arms, and a laceration to his right arm.

White admitted to Houston police that his bruises were caused by a slap to the face. The welts were caused by her hitting him with a belt. 

White stated that she was frustrated with her son because he refused to study his school work. She admits beating him in July because he wouldn't recite or spell his sight words.


Court documents revealed that White admitted to hitting her son with a back hand, after he was 'talking back.'  White allegedly stated, "It was because he told me no and that is a sign of disrespect."

She also admitted to giving him five "too forceful" swats from a belt that broke the skin on his arm.


The incident of White using the Taser on her son happened in November 2016 after a bad day at school. White said, "When I tried to talk with him about it, he didn't want to discuss it, and he was running away from me. I picked it up and tased him with it."

White told investigators that her "anger management class told me not to tase him but we didn't go into what else to do." 


White's 6-year-old son and his 2-week-old sibling have been placed under temporary custody through Child Protective Services (CPS). They are now living with a relative. White is allowed supervised visitation with her infant because she is still breastfeeding. 

White was released on a $5,000 bond and is expected to appear in a Harris County court in September.

White's attorney, Brian Warren, stated, "This is a CPS issue, not a criminal law issue. It's discipline that went a little too far." 
He said his client has been taking parenting classes and attempting to comply with CPS requirements.

"I think she'll learn from this and she'll be a fine mother," he continued. "I do expect this case to be dismissed after Ms. White completes both anger management and parenting classes as prescribed by CPS."
