Back in October 2010, 29-year old Keemonta Peterson was arrested in Portland after she injured her 3-month son while trying to circumcise him at home. The baby was taken to the hospital in critical condition and fortunately survived the injury.
She was released on Thursday after bail was posted. She is currently awaiting trial. She has been charged with first- and second-degree assault and first-degree criminal mistreatment.
I feel bad for the son – I hope he is not scared for life!
And for the rest of DIY parents, please please please, don’t try it at home – get a doctor or else let the baby keep the extra skin!
