Two northern Arizona parents were arrested after photos of their young children allegedly being abused were posted on Facebook.
An anonymous Facebook user reportedly alerted authorities on Wednesday after seeing two children, an infant and a toddler, bound with duct tape around their wrists and ankles in photos posted to the social networking site.
In the photos, the 2-year-old and 10-month-old are allegedly bound with duct tape around their wrists and ankles. Their mouths were also closed shut with duct tape. Police said one of the children was hung upside down on an exercise apparatus.
Jayla Hamm, who was 17 at the time of the abuse, received 10 days in jail and two years probation. Her boyfriend, Corde Honea, 19, an ex-convict, was sentenced to three to five years for child abuse and received an additional 12 to 24 months on felony possession of stolen firearms.
Two Cabbage Patch dolls, one Chatty Cathy and three other dolls, along with a storage box, were reported missing after a padlock was cut in the basement storage area of a Fisher Road apartment complex.
When he was 19, rapper 50 Cent pleaded guilty to selling controlled substances (heroin and crack cocaine). Later, in July 2005, he received two years of probation for three counts of assault and battery stemming from an incident a year prior when the singer jumped into the audience after being hit by a water bottle.
