          Eight-Year-Old Accused Of Disturbing Behaviors Claims Adoptive Mom Makes Him ‘Admit Stuff That I Don’t Do’


          January 19, 2017

          Jerica’s 8-year-old son was the subject of a CPS investigation after his adoptive mom, Kim, claimed he bit, pinched and bruised her 21-month-old baby.

          The child spent six months in a residential psychiatric treatment center where he allegedly admitted to trying to harm the family dog and killing over a dozen chickens on the family farm.

          TELL DR. PHIL YOUR STORY: Accused of something terrible?

          The child’s birth mother, Jerica, says he was sent to stay with her recently, when Kim told her she could no longer handle him.

          In the video above, her son claims his adoptive mother puts words in his mouth, making him “admit stuff that I don’t do.”

          When asked why her adopted son would say that Kim responds “He was coached.”
