JACKSONVILLE, FL  –  An officer with the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office has been arrested and charged with felony child abuse, Undersheriff Pat Ivey announced Tuesday.

Officer Erica Nicole McRae, 37, a 12-year veteran with the sheriff’s office, is accused of disciplining her son by beating him with a plastic clothes hanger.

“The child was supposedly disciplined for misbehaving at school, and allegedly (McRae) struck the child multiple times with a clothes hanger to the point that the plastic clothes hanger broke,” Ivey said. “(McRae) allegedly grabbed a second clothes hanger and continued to discipline the child.”

Police said the child reported being beaten on Oct. 12 and then again the morning of Oct. 13.  He went to school that day and reported the beating to a school administrator, who called the Department of Children and Families, police said.

DCF contacted JSO and the child was interviewed and medically examined on Oct. 14.

Ivey said there were several injuries on the boy’s arms and legs. He said the bruises were consistent with a thin, curved object, like a hanger.

Opinions were split on social media Tuesday about whether the punishment went too far, but a child psychologist said physical punishment on a child is never justifiable.

“The problem with (physical) punishment is it does change the behavior when the parent is around, but as soon as the parent disappears, the child will carry out that same behavior when the parent isn’t around,” parenting psychologist Dr. Justin D’Arienzo said.

He said most psychologists and pediatricians would not recommend corporal punishment or spanking, even though 66 percent of Americans believe it is effective.  D’Arienzo said corporal punishment does more damage than good.

“There’s research that shows kids may have mental health problems or be more aggressive and also fear their parents, if the parents use those means,” D’Arienzo said.

He said not all children have lasting impacts from corporal punishment but said it can increase the risk for problems.

For a felony arrest, officers are given the option of resigning or going on leave. McRae has elected to go on leave without pay.

DCF said it is still investigating the case and that there are no other cases involving McRae.

The child is now living with another relative. 

Another Indictment Against Our Justice System

Child Predator Jerry Sandusky

This is a sad day in the history of Our Country.

Day after day so many innocent people are being railroaded on circumstantial evidence alone.

At the same time KNOWN PEDOPHILES never pay for their crimes against Our Society.

Due to the two(2) forms of justice in Our Country, Rich Justice and Poor Justice, KNOWN PEDOPHILES like Dennis Hastert are given bond amounts like $4,500, while the have-nots are given bond amounts like $50,000.

Equal justice would see the have-nots paying bond amounts like $50,000, while the above justice crowd would pay amounts closer to $5,000,000.  Then the jury would be representative of the true America, based on the percentage of rich, poor, and race.

For Jerry Sandusky to be considered for appeal, first, every other person who has an appeal already granted, theirs should be cleared first.  While every person waiting on appeal should wait at the very same place, IN GENERAL POPULATION.

BELLEFONTE, PA  –  The former Penn State assistant football coach convicted on multiple child sex-abuse charges will be returning to court for an appeal hearing.

WJAC-TV  reports that Judge John Cleland has ordered that Jerry Sandusky be moved from a state prison in Greene County to Bellefonte so he can be present for the Oct. 29 hearing.

Sandusky is appealing his 2012 conviction, claiming his trial attorney was ineffective. He also claims he was prejudiced because three former Penn State administrators awaiting trial on alleged cover-up charges weren’t available to testify at his trial.

The attorney general’s office already has filed a response calling the appeal “baseless.”

Sandusky is serving 30 to 60 years for his conviction on more than 40 child-sex abuse charges.
