Other parents: boyfriend duct-taped children to chairs and made them watch ‘Mommie Dearest’
To Nebraska City, where two boys are watching the movie Mommie Dearest. The film’s bio runs:
Mommie Dearest, best selling memoir, turned motion picture, depicts the abusive and traumatic adoptive upbringing of Christina Crawford at the hands of her mother…screen queen Joan Crawford.
The two young movie fans, ages 4 and 6, may one day get to write a sequel of sorts in their own memoirs because their mum’s boyfriend, Glenn Oliver, 30, has duct-taped them to their chairs. Mary K. Lucas wanted her sons to watch the movie to show them she wasn’t the world’s meanest mom.
When she went out to work, Oliver tried to make sure the kids did as mum wanted by forcing them to watch the show.
Someone looking in spotted the children glued to their seats inside a filthy home. They called the police. And now sweet Oliver has been sentenced to three years in prison.
