Vt. man sentenced for forcing son in snow barefoot

Posted: Updated:

A St. Johnsbury man has been given five years of probation after pleading guilty to forcing his 14-year-old son to shovel snow and exercise outside barefoot, resulting in frostbite.

Robert Stone, 42, was convicted of aggravated domestic assault on his son. Temperatures were below freezing in mid-January last year when the boy was outside.

Under the terms of his probation, Stone got a five-year deferred sentence, must have mental health counseling, take a parenting education course and not engage in violent or threatening behavior.
