Daddy -O-Five Update!

Hey Everyone!

A while back I posted about the ‘Daddy-O-Five’ scandal. If you are unfamiliar with it I leave a link to my first post. Riiiiiiiight…..HERE! Feel free to check it out.

Last we knew two of the five kids were living with their biological mother. That is still the case, and since that update we haven’t heard anything else. That is/was because there was a gag order and legal proceedings were going down. This has now been covered on multiple new outlets and of course back on YouTube. Heather and Mike Martin have now been charged with a 10 year suspended prison sentence, and 5 years probation for child neglect. Some may see this as going to soft on them and others may not. The gist is that if they break probation in any way they can serve up to 10 years in prison.

Here is a write up from Fox 5 News: Link

Another one from The Frederick News Post: Link

And lastly one from The Baltimore Sun: Link

If you want to hear it from the words of my man Philip DeFranco you can watch his take from here in this video: (Skip to the 7 min mark, not sure why my link didn’t work correctly)

 

It is pretty ridiculous to think that they got away with this crap for so long. It really makes your blood boil. I am personally please that the justice system has intervened and that this injustice was brought to light.

I’d like to end the post today by asking you the community, do you think they got off too easy? Do you think this is the end of the story? Let me know down below!

  1. I don’t think it’s the end of the story because those children have been traumatized.

    I don’t know all of the details here, but I can say that there have been good parents who’ve been put through the ringer just because someone accused them and without evidence. Then there are literally those who are both physically and emotionally abusive who get off scott free or just get their wrists slapped. My gut feeling here (without knowing everything) is that this was a wrist slapping.
