A Florida woman was arrested earlier this week after she beat her adult son with a belt because he missed his curfew.
FOX 8 reports Valerie Lee Branch-Galloway,42, allegedly hit her 26-year-old stepson 11 times on his bottom with a leather belt after he arrived home after midnight. Before the assault, she asked him to make a decision: tell his father that he missed his curfew or get struck with the belt.
She continued to hit him 19 times, saying that he had 19 more hits to go. After her arrest, Galloway confessed to hitting her stepson but she mentioned that he did not tell her to stop and asked how many blows he had left.
