A mother has been arrested after duct-taping her son's face leaving the nose uncovered and sending a picture to his distressed father who contacted
Fearing for his son's safety, Yado contacted Sandusky police and asked officers to check on the boy at Ennis' home.
Ennis told police she was playing around with duct tape with her friend and their kids and that she had wrapped tape over her son's eyes and mouth
because they both thought it was funny, according to the police report. Only the boy's nose was left uncovered. She also taped up the head of an
11-year-old girl, according to the police report. The report did not identify the parents of the girl.
Ennis said it was not meant to be hurtful and they were joking around, the report said. Ennis was charged with two counts of child endangering. She
pleaded not guilty to the charges and is due back in Sandusky Municipal Court for trial on May 30.
If the mother and child really were just goofing around, then the father and police department has over reacted.
This seems more than likely harmless fun that has fallen foul of an estranged father and a nanny state mentality.
