Mother Who Forced Son to Drink Acid Gets Fifty Year Sentence

January 28, 2006 - Posted at 2:10 p.m.

MOUNT IDA, Ark. (AP) _ An Arkansas woman who forced her

five-year-old son to drink sulfuric acid as she ``cooked''

methamphetamine has been sentenced to 50 years in prison after

pleading guilty to felony drug and battery charges.

Twenty-five-year-old Lisa Renee Tramel of Norman was sentenced in

Montgomery County Circuit Court.

Officers said she poured drain cleaner into a glass and ordered

her son to drink as she and another person prepared meth in their

trailer home a year ago.

The boy, now in foster care, suffered acid burns to his mouth

and esophagus, as well as other internal injuries. Speaking with a

tube in his throat, he told investigators he was watching cartoons

when his mother called him a brat and gave him the stuff that

burned him.

The boy continues to have difficulty speaking because of his

injuries.
