A Florida man, Randall Warren Piercy, has been arrested on charges of aggravated child abuse after it was discovered that he had been keeping his own son prisoner in his house under constant surveillance from cameras in the house. The boy was held captive in his house and was not allowed contact with anyone outside of his family for much of the last three years. He was allowed to use the restroom once per day and even though Piercy claimed he was home schooled it was found that the boy was unable to read even basic children’s books and had not received any kind of medical attention during his time in captivity. Piercy is being held on $1 million bond and the boy’s mother insists that the boy had not been abused. “We are very protective,” she said. The mother has not been charged as of this writing but investigators are currently looking into her role in the abuse.
