A Texas woman was sentenced to two years in prison for assaulting her 6-year-old son by tearing his genitals and then attempting to glue them back.
Jennifer Vargas, 34, was arrested by FBI agents after admitting yanking her son’s testicles in a fit of rage, creating a 1 1/2-inch laceration. In an attempt to cover up the injury, she poured rubbing alcohol on the wound and tried to stop the bleeding using super glue, reports My San Antonio.
Vargas’ husband, who is in the Army, returned home and heard his son crying in his room. He went to find out what was wrong and discovered a bloody tissue in his son’s underwear. The father immediately rushed the boy to hospital, where he needed surgery.
Vargas pleaded guilty to the charge of assault. She was sentenced by Judge Orlando Garcia to two years in prison and five years of supervised release, reports KGBT.
Vargas was emotional as she received her sentence.
“I would like to say that I regret my actions,” Vargas said in court. "I do love my children with all my heart.”
