Harnessing Children Sentencing 01 Jun 13

A St. Cloud man has been sentenced to 20 days in jail and 5 years of probation for forcing two children to walk around a daycare in his home with harnesses around their necks. As many as 5 witnesses reported seeing 68-year-old Waldamar Tischner push the kids to the ground and pull them back up again by their collars as well. Police also noticed scratches and red marks on the children’s faces and chin. Tischner told police at the time he was upset with the children, but claimed to have never placed harnesses around their necks or harmed them.
