Rashad Forman, Turella Forman and Duane Fletcher are facing aggravated child abuse charges after they have been arrested in Florida for reportedly beating a child with several things such as jump rope, belt, clothes hanger and even a changing cord because the didn’t not finish his homework.
According to the child,Rashad Forman started beating him because he didn’t do his homework, when Turella Forman came home, she beat the child again with a phone cord. The child said he was forced to hold two books in each hand and keep the arms straight as he was being beaten and a rug was put in his mouth so no body can hear him.
The beatings have caused “an uncountable number of whip and lash marks throughout (the child’s) entire body.” A medical examination found the child doesn’t have any area of clean, unscarred skin on the upper thighs.
Moreover, the affidavit stated that Turella Forman has been allegedly involved in cases of child abuse since 2015 and five other children has been removed from the home. The foster child has also been removed but returned a year later.
The Broward Sheriff’s Office Child Protective Investigative Section was being questioned why Turella Forman was still allowed to foster children despite the previous allegations. But they declined to comment, citing that their cases are confidential.
Meanwhile, two of the suspects were released on bond while an investigation into the case is ongoing.
