After making the victim instant ramen on the stove, the child pretended to spill the pot on one of the other children, according to the sheriff’s office.

Child abuse

To teach the child a lesson, Posy took the hot pot and pressed it against the child’s arm, according to the sheriff’s office. The victim suffered about a four-inch burn.

Deputies charged Posey with aggravated child abuse.

"Children will be children, but an adult should know better than to use such great physical punishment to try to correct their bad behavior. This suspect's actions were intentional, unacceptable, and she will now face the consequences for inflicting unnecessary pain on a helpless child," said Sheriff Chad Chronister.
