Darnell Alan Landrum was sentenced to 120 days in jail after he pleaded guilty to one count of malicious punishment of a child after making his stepdaughter perform a humiliating act last spring, KARE 11-TV reports.

The 34-year-old man and his wife, Stephanie Ann Broten, both of Fridley, Minn., made her daughter wear a tank top and diaper as punishment for receiving poor marks in school. Her head had also been shaved. Neighbors reportedly called the cops after witnessing the girl running up and down the street crying  hysterically.

    This man should have received more time and a higher fine. In addition, the Judge should order him to wear a diaper; stand on a corner carrying a sign that says, “I abuse children”.
