Knoxville Man Sentenced for Placing Shock Collar on Son
A Knoxville man who had placed a shock collar on his son has been sentenced. 35 year-old Daniel Hardwick was given a two-year suspended sentence, two years of probation, and a $625 fine. The charge was child endangerment, no injury. Court records say Hardwick put the collar on his 12-year-old son and shocked him as motivation to do chores. Hardwick also was accused of putting the child in a high chair by a street curb with a sign that said, ``I refused to eat my big boy food, please feed me _ I'm hungry.'' Hardwick told KCCI in July that he understood he made a mistake putting the collar on his son, but he had no intention of shocking him.
