The boy sought help about 10 p.m. Tuesday at a neighbor’s home in the 4400 block of Peach Orchard Road in Hephzibah, according to a Richmond County Sheriff’s Office news release. The child told the neighbor his mother had assaulted him when she was intoxicated and he feared for the safety of his sibling, according to the release.

Deputies found the boy had bruises on his chest, chin, forehead, neck, elbow and face and bite marks on his cheek, ear, shoulder and the back of his head. The other child was not injured.

Crystal Lynne Quick, 41, was booked into the Richmond County jail on charges of felony cruelty to children in the first degree and a misdemeanor charge of cruelty to children in the third degree.

What goes around comes

What goes around comes around.I feel real bad for that innocent child. We all should report any suspicions of child abuse.

The problem runs deep

We are seeing an emotionally disturbed mother, and yes a mean drunk.

What happen is unacceptable, but this family has reached a point in their lives where they desperately need help.

One question is:
Will she be treated or just imprisoned?
Jail time without proper & real treatment, does nothing to resolve the families problem, once she is released.

More than likely an abused child herself.
Unpublished

Not an excuse, but a pattern of human behavior. She needs a good dose of genuine repentance and forgiveness found only in Jesus Christ. May the Lord reach out to this entire family. She can change. She can change the history of this family from this day forward. It is possible.

That took significant courage

That took significant courage on the child's part to seek out help from a neighbor.

A Real Mother.........Is Not This Woman!

At 41 years old, I doubt there is much this drunkened mother would listen to, or learn. She needs to do some time and and think about what a crummy mother she was, and how a little child did not deserve All she inflicted on him! If she is on the "public dole" , take her off, that should go without saying. I know one thing, those children deserve better....better than her!

She is a Mother by Biology ONLY
Unpublished

The children should be removed from her custody. She should be under the jail, during her treatment. Bite marks ??!! Holy Crap ! She should be sterilized. She's a woman, but NOT a mother, except by biology. Remember, your children will choose your nursing home -- Nurse Cratchet (sp?) is ready for YOU !!
