Jennifer Marie Vargas is definitely in the running for worst parent of the
month, year, hmm–ever! Vargas admits to tearing her six-year-old’s scrotum and bruising his penis after grabbing his genitals in a fit of rage.
Part two–instead of seeking medical attention for the her son, Vargas used alcohol, (yes alcohol) to clean the four-centimeter-tear and then super-glued the wound shut.
Part three–instead of reconsidering her first thought of not seeking medical attention, and treating her son like a broken action figure, Vargas stuffed paper towels in the boy’s underwear and told him to go to bed.
The boy’s father, who is in the Army returned home to find the boy crying with bloody tissue in his underwear. The father immediately took the injured boy to the San Antonio Military Medical Center.
The FBI charged Jennifer Marie Vargas, 34, with assault within maritime and territorial jurisdiction resulting in serious bodily injury. She faces up to 10 years in prison.
“Due to the child’s extreme physical pain, the medical staff had to administer medication,” the affidavit said. “The child was taken into surgery to repair the damage to his scrotum.”
The child is recovering from the surgery and remains in his father’s custody.
Vargas, the affidavit said, admitted to agents that while angry with the boy she grabbed him by the scrotum and pulled him to her as hard as she could, “thereby ripping his ‘sack’ and causing a laceration.”
There is never a reason to get that angry with a child and do what Vargas did…just awful!
