At-Home Circumcision Lands Man in Jail

ForeskinA man in Dallas, N.C., was charged with child abuse for circumcising his two baby boys at home with a utility knife, the Associated Press reported.

Johnny Eric Marlowe, a 32-year-old polygamist, fathered one child with his legal wife, and the other with his other ladyfriend (who also lives in the house). Both sons were birthed at the little clan's home, four months apart. Shelly Hartley, a Caldwell County detective, told the Associated Press that Marlowe "doesn't like hospitals and denied the women prenatal care in both cases, then circumcised the boys when they were 8 days old."

Marlowe is serving a 150-day jail sentence there on charges of resisting a public officer, assault on a female, and multiple counts of child neglect. Dude has 11 children with the two women.

A former neighbor had this to say: "Sick, he's got a sick mind. Anybody that would do that to their children -- there's something really wrong with them.”

I concur.
