Woman Arrested For Spanking Stranger's Child
Gloria Ballard was arrested on Tuesday for spanking Sean Goode, the 2-year-old child of Donnay Jones, whom she did not know.
The incident took place at a Salvation Army store in Cincinnati, Ohio. Ballard, who has children and grandchildren, was arrested and charged with assaulting the two-year-old. Gloria Ballard faces a maximum sentence of six months in prison, and a fine of $1,000. She claimed that she was only trying to help the child behave.
“She was basically trying to tell me what to do with my son,” Jones told WLWT-TV. She told Ballard she would handle her own business and son. Then, she said, Ballard took Sean from her and spanked him, causing him to cry.
