Pregnant Florida Woman Charged After “Dipping” Child’s Private Area Into Scalding Hot Water

A Florida woman has been charged in a disturbing case of aggravated child abuse after burning a young girl’s private area, back, and behind with scalding hot water as punishment.

According to court documents, 23-year-old Angelina Marie Mayton, arrived at a hospital on December 27th, with a child who was suffering from 3rd-degree burns.

Mayton told doctors that she had left the child unattended in the bath, and the child victim must have turned on hot water.

Police interviewed Mayton at the hospital and she stated that she was 9-months pregnant and things around the house were a little more “tension-y”.

Doctors noted to police that the burns were consistent with intentional injury, not accidental.

Other injuries, such as a healing fractured wrist were found on the child victim.

A nurse practitioner from Orlando’s Child Protection Team, stated to police that she believed the water temperature was above 150 degrees and that Mayton “dipped” the child in the scalding water as punishment, holding the child’s head and feet up, while dipping her bottom in the water.

Officials said that the child’s injuries are “significant and probable to cause lifelong disfigurement if not loss of feeling, according to physicians.”

Doctors also noted that the child has undergone numerous painful procedures, including the child needing a catheter and a colostomy bag, and remains hospitalized.

Mayton is charged with aggravated child abuse with serious bodily injury. She was booked into the Brevard County Jail on bonded out Friday with $35,000.
