Mom: Ex-boyfriend kept son sleeping in bathroom

BRENTWOOD, N.H. (AP) — The mother of an abused Plaistow toddler says her former boyfriend forced the 3-year-old to spend most of his time in the bathroom, including sleeping in the tub, in the weeks before the boy was hospitalized in November 2012.

Jessica Linscott is serving 2 ½ to 7 years in prison for failing to get her son medical help and coaching him to lie to a social worker. She finished testifying Monday against her former boyfriend, Roland Dow, who faces assault and other charges.

The couple was arrested at a Florida amusement park two weeks after leaving the boy at a hospital with a severe brain injury and burns. Linscott denies causing those injuries but says she regularly spanked him and once hit his arm with a spray cleaner bottle.
