A mother and her boyfriend were found guilty Wednesday of forcing the woman's 8-year-old daughter into a cold bath on multiple occasions by binding her wrists and ankles.

Cold bath...Pffft That is not a crime! Binding her wrists and ankles? Let's get the "drama" straight for once!

This "mother" and BF have some serious issues that need to be dealt with behind bars!

"(Yahiro) caused great mental and physical pain on the child by leaving her in a cold bath for more than an hour during winter," Presiding Judge Tadayuki Okazaki said as he also criticized the mother for not protecting the child.

Then why the suspended sentences you twit?

Wait......they did this to an innocent 8 year old because she still isn't in control of her bladder because she is still a CHILD, but they walk free? Gotta love that "fair Japanese justice system!"

Bed wetting at 8 years old? Stress and mental anguish can be causes of incontinence.... Poor child.

Suspended sentence?

How the hell is that an effective way to deal with bed wetting? I wager that the pathetic excuses for parents of these two animals did the same to them. Japan’s got some serious child raising issues

Whatever the case may be, I hope the girl is in a good place now and never ever ever ever given back to her mother.

Why do so many of these cases deal with women and their boyfriends? Why do they stay with these degenerates who harm their kids? The father I can kind of understand but boyfriends who are unrelated? Horrible mothers!

A slap on their wrist and being told to not do it again. History might repeat itself within just over year. "Fair" criminal justice system I will never understand.

The so called "parents" are absolute scum of the earth, particularly the mother. Slap over the wrist for both. The so called mother should be sterilized. It is to be expected these two evil child abusers never have any further contact with the poor girl for the rest of their lives.

What a sad story. The poor girl will spend her life recovering from this - if she ever really does. Many don’t.

it would be good to find a way to try to fix these people before defaulting to destroying them.

Suspended sentences, so no time served. I bet social services are planning to return the child to her mother. Poor child.

"I did it to discipline her because she had wet the bed."

She was wetting the bed because of the trauma she was experiencing from these two animals that were supposed to be her parents.

Neither of them should have received suspended sentences for such cold and callous abuse of a child. Dumping a kid in a cold bath in the middle of winter with her hands and feet bound is blatant and premeditated cruelty. I have no doubt they both knew what they were doing is wrong and they be spending time in prison for it.

No, time served is something different.

I was wondering the same thing. I suspect it goes back several generations.

It seems to be the done thing for the father to just disappear when a couple separate or get divorced. I imagine the boyfriends who then come along are immature man-children who actually hate having the kids around.

What? What kind of animal would do that to a child??

Zero sympathy for the mother and the "boyfriend".
