37-year-old Cheryl Darlene Dudley of Missouri has officially taken herself out of the mother of the year race. Here are the disturbing details of the case, courtesy of The Huffington Post:
St. Peters officers arrived at the residence of Cheryl Darlene Dudley Monday after receiving a report that her toddler was tied to the garage with a rope. A further search of the premises revealed a loaded rifle in a crib and narcotics on a dresser that police said were within reach of Dudley’s 22-month-old daughter, as well as her 7-year-old child. Authorities found the toddler had several flea bites and scratches on her body, along with bruises. Dudley allegedly admitted to disciplining the young child.
Well, I guess it’s not as bad as it seems having drugs and guns in a toddlers room because the baby wasn’t even there. He was tied down to the garage for his own safety. Parenting 101.
