A husband and wife pleaded guilty to stuffing their three children into plastic storage boxes and making them stand on pins to 'punish' them yesterday.
Samantha, 26, and James Taylor, 29, of Steubenville, Ohio pleaded guilty to counts of child endangerment and unlawful restraint, according to WTOV9.
They subjected their three children aged 5, 6 and 8 to horrific torture when they believed they had misbehaved.
It included restraining the children before taping them into small storage boxes.
They were placed inside the boxes for 15-30 minutes with square holes cut out of the lids to expose the top part of their faces.
Water was also poured on the children while they were crammed in, struggling to breath.
They also had weights dropped on their toes and were forced to stand on their tiptoes in the corner of a room with pins placed under their feet when the parents believed they had misbehaved.
They would then be given heavy weights to hold up in the air so when they finally gave way the pins would pierce through the soles of their feet.
Following the plea deal, where both parents admitted two counts of child endangerment and one count of unlawful restraint, James Taylor will serve one year behind bars.
Samantha Taylor will serve two years of probation.
