Dad Who Put Dog Shock Collars on Kids Gets 16 Years in Prison

Saturday, January 31, 2009

XENIA, Ohio — A western Ohio man has been sentenced to 16 years in prison for disciplining his children with a dog shock collar.

David Liskany of Jamestown had pleaded guilty to charges of felonious assault and attempted felonious assault. Prosecutors had recommended a lighter sentence under the plea deal.

In court yesterday, Greene County Common Pleas Judge J. Timothy Campbell compared the punishments to torture. He said the case sounded "like something from Guantanamo Bay."

Campbell said the 39-year-old punished the children in 2006 and 2007 by putting them in cold showers, holding them underwater and using the shock collar.

The children are now 5, 12 and 14.

The case began after the oldest child walked for two days to reach a family member.

I used to live about 10 minutes from there! Hmmm, no wonder I moved...

Seriously though, that's sad.

Are the children suitably well behaved now?

It's a shame we don't require people to pass a test before becoming parents. If they fail, they get speutered. I know it won't happen in this world, but it would stop a lot of the violence against children.
