The boy's father called police Monday after receiving a disturbing cell phone picture of his 7-year-old son.
The picture came from Tiffany Ennis, 31, of Sandusky, a Sandusky police report said. She is now charged with two counts of child endangering.
“(The mother) sent a picture to (the father) of their child … with his eyes and mouth covered with duct tape,” the report said. “She advised it was funny.”
The father disagreed. Police called the mother, who said “she was playing around with duct tape with her friend and their kids,” the report said.
The mother said no one was hurt and she was only joking, but police forwarded their findings to the prosecutor’s office, which approved the charges on Wednesday.
