No charges planned for mom who whipped burglary suspect sons

A Louisiana district attorney says he has no intention of charging a 30-year-old mother arrested for whipping her three boys after she found out they had burglarized a neighbor’s house.

Schaquana Spears was arrested June 20 in Baton Rouge and charged with two counts of cruelty to juveniles — felony charges.

A sheriff’s report said she allegedly whipped her 13- and 12-year-old boys so badly she left marks on their bodies. Lacerations on the 13-year-old’s arms had bled.

But East Baton Rouge Parish District Attorney Hillar Moore III says he does not intend to prosecute Spears.

He told The Advocate on Friday (http://bit.ly/298OaNl ) that it would “take something significant” to change his mind.
