A young Florida couple was charged with using a taser on their children.
NBC Miami reports:
The News-Press reports Joshua Pierre Louis, 28, and Roxanne Paduani, 33, were arrested Thursday.
The Department of Children and Families began investigating following a call to the Florida Abuse Hotline.
A Lee County Sheriff’s Office arrest reports says one of the four children at the Lehigh Acres home told a DCF investigator that Louis would use a Taser on them when they were bad and showed the investigator scars.
The ages of the children weren’t immediately reported.
Louis and Paduani were each being held on $200,000 bail. Jail records didn’t list an attorney.
