Texas Mom Pleads Guilty to Ripping Son's Genitals

Posted: Updated:

(KCEN) -- A 34-year-old Texas woman will spend the next two years in federal prison after she pleaded guilty to tearing her young son's genitals and then using glue to try to fix the wound.

Jennifer Vargas pleaded guilty to the crime.

It's not clear why Vargas became so angry that she grabbed the boy's genitals.

The injury was discovered when the 6-year-old boy's father came home and found the child crying in his room.

The boy had surgery and is okay.
