Man sentenced for putting stepson's face in scalding water
By CHRIS ECHEGARAY • Staff Writer • June 23, 2008


A man was sentenced to 11 years in prison today for putting his 3-year-old stepson’s face under scalding hot water in a last-minute plea bargain in Davidson County Criminal Court.

Joshua Schaffer, 30, pleaded guilty to attempted child abuse stemming from the Dec. 8, 2006 incident. Schaffer, who was slated for trial in front of Judge Cheryl Blackburn this morning, has to serve at least 30 percent of the sentence.

Schaffer was taking care of the child while his wife worked. He decided to discipline the child by putting his face under hot water, Assistant District Attorney General Sharon Reddick recounted in court.

Schaffer took the toddler to Southern Hills Medical Center, where he was treated for first and second degree burns, court records show.

What a great mother to leave her child with such a monster.

How on earth can you place blame on the mother for this? It's not as if she left the kid with a complete stranger, this is her husband. And it appears that she told him he wasn't allowed to spank the kid, so rather than not physically disciplining him, which is sounds like she was trying to prevent, he finds something other than spanking to do. The article doesn't mention anything about priors, so this could very well be the first time that he did anything like this. The guy deserves whatever he has coming, and most likely more, the mother doesn't deserve to be chastised and blamed for the actions of someone else.

You've never heard of enabling, I take it? There is such a thing as being an accomplice, too. Absolving her of any wrongdoing is probably premature. As with all the articles we discuss hereabouts, there's vastly more to this story than we're getting in a few paragraphs. I'm sure there's plenty of blame to go around in this story.

i'm sure art just didn't realize that the cafe was the home of the perfect parent alliance.
We must not confuse dissent from disloyalty. We will not walk in fear, one of another, we will not be driven by fear into an age of unreason.

I can guarantee the mother knew more than you think. The article mentioned that he disciplined the child by giving him hot and/or cold showers so there were priors. And the mother had to have been aware of this. She did not protect her child, which is her most important responsbility. She let this happen to her kid.

She's an accomplice for leaving her kid with her husband? I mean, sure, she left the kid with a person that eventually did something really bad to him, but come on, she couldn't have seen this coming. No mother would leave their kid with someone who they thought might harm them.

As opposed to the pithy comment/sockpuppet alliance?
