A judge in Brevard County sentenced a woman Friday to 40 years in prison for what he called “cold… calculated… and evil.” Sharon Glass, 50, was accused of starving her boyfriend’s son and leaving him in a cage, she’s now convicted of the horrendous crime.
When the 12-year-old victim was found, he was a skeleton weighing only 40 pounds.
The young man survived. He is now 14-years-old, and he was able to testify in the trial. He said the reason he was locked up and not given food was because Glass and his father, Michael Marshall, said he was “misbehaving.”
Reports indicate Glass also zip-tied the boy to a bed more than once and has locked him in small rooms in the house in the past.
Glass claimed during her trial, she didn’t know the child was starved and abused, she blamed it all on Marshall.
News 13 reports the child’s father, Marshall, took a plea in February and is set to be sentenced in April. He could get as little as 19 years or a maximum of 30.
The child is now safe and lives with his grandmother.
