WINTER GARDEN, Fla. (AP) - A mother and her friend have been charged with child cruelty after authorities say they put the woman’s 10-year-old son in a dress and makeup as punishment for wetting his pants.

Police say 34-year-old Christle Prado and 26-year-old Keith Driscoll were arrested last week in Winter Garden, an Orlando suburb.

Prado reportedly told an investigator that she was frustrated that her son had been wetting himself and went to Driscoll for advice.

Driscoll had the idea for dressing her son up as a girl.

Prado says the boy was dressed as a girl for only two minutes. Police learned about the incident after a relative saw Facebook photos of the boy wearing the dress and crying.



A phone number for Prado on the police report was disconnected.
