Criminal Justice Quote: Texas Parents From Hell

     A Texas couple was arrested and charged with keeping a 5-year-old malnourished boy inside the closet of their home. Investigators said the child was found in his diaper in the small closet by his 16-year-old stepbrother Thursday night, March 27, 2014. The teen confronted his stepfather, Bradley Bleimeyer, and the two got into a fight. By the time police arrived at the Spring, Texas home, they said the victim's stepmother, Tammi Bleimeyer and the biological father took off with the little boy.

     The next day deputies with the Harris County Sheriff's Office used cellphone data to track down the couple at a motel in Humble, about 13 miles away. The appearance of the 5-year-old victim caused deputies to immediately summon emergency service personnel who transported the victim to a nearby hospital….

     Deputies immediately arrested Bradley Bleimeyer and Tammi Bleimeyer at the motel. Both were charged with felony child-endangerment and booked into the Harris County Jail in Houston. The father is in jail with no bail, and the victim's stepmother's bond was set at $2,000. She has been released.

     The victim is in the hospital in stable condition and is expected to remain in the hospital for weeks. He is in the custody of Children's Protective Services….Authorities are looking for the boy's stepbrothers and sisters. There are six of them ranging in age from one to sixteen. Authorities want to make sure they are okay.
