Mother Jailed For Burning Off Son’s Penis And Nipples With A Lighter

In a horrific story out of New Hampshire, a mother, aged 53, has been sentenced to up to 30 years in jail, for burning her 19-year-old son’s penis and also burning his nipples off with a lighter.

The man was allegedly assaulted and tortured by his mother, Christine Gelineau, on numerous occasions, and then coerced by her to say the wounds were self inflicted. The court files also reveal that he was abused and tortured by two other people as well as his mother.

Christine Gelineau sat in an orange jumpsuit in court, sobbing as her son read the following heart-wrenching words:

Dear ex-Mother, What you did to me is unforgivable. You beat me, starved me, almost chopped my penis off, threw my clothes away, wouldn’t let me bathe. You almost killed me by having me take three (antidepressants) and two muscle-relaxers. Now that I know you’re a complete criminal and only wanted me dead so you could go back to your old life. You won’t be able to attend my graduation or see me go on to college, so I wish you goodbye. I hope you realize you have lost everything you had.

Gelineau pleaded guilty to first-degree assault and witness tampering. She accepted a plea bargain which will see her in jail for a period of nine to 30 years.

George Waldron, the assistant county prosecutor in the case said the man suffered permanent nerve damage to his penis when it was burned with a lighter in April 2012: “What she did alone was one of the most horrible things I’ve seen,” said Waldron.

Gelineau admitted that she had indeed burned the tip of her son’s penis but only after he threatened to have sex with her. Her motherly response was to put gloves on, as she thought her son was dirty, and grab his penis, twisting it and burning the tip with a lighter for a few seconds.

The sickening story gets even worse as another suspect in the case, Daniel ‘Tyler’ Cantrell explained to detectives.

He alleges that he witnessed Gelineau pressuring her son to consume human feces under threat of having his penis burned if he didn’t. After he complied and ate the feces, Cantrell says, she went ahead and burnt his penis anyway.

Cantrell, aged 20, admitted to assisting Gelineau with the abuse by kicking her son into a bedroom, tying him down securely and walking away as Gelineau pulled his pants down.

It was also alleged that Gelineau kicked her son in the face and hit him repeatedly with a pen in the stomach, but those charges were dropped as part of the plea bargain deal.

A third suspect, the victim’s cousin, Amy Nason, aged 29, is also due in court accused of making the victim consume urine, worms and soap. The victim was born with serious mental deficiencies making the details of this case even worse.
