Two New Mexico parents are outraged after discovering their son -who has Down Syndrome- was abused by his babysitters, who threw plastic bottles at him and forced him to smoke from a bong.
Bricen Greenhaus’ abuse was well-documented by his own abusers who posted videos of the young nonverbal boy being struck with a large plastic bottle and forced to take hits off of a bong. The two female perpetrators -Lyndsey Moss and Dallas Baron- were apparently oblivious of the consequences and posted the videos to the internet.
Mother Amanda Greenhaus took to Facebook in order to express her outrage and appeal to others to demand the two young women be denied any plea deal.
“I am the mother of Bricen Greenhaus. My son has Down’s Syndrome and doesn’t communicate well,” she wrote. “He is the most wonderful, carrying, trusting little boy who can and will brighten anyone’s day! Two people whom I entrusted my special needs child with physically abused him KNOWING he would be unable to tell anyone. Taking their disgusting behavior even further, they videoed the abuse.”
According to court records from San Juan County, Baron and Moss were charged with multiple counts of Abuse of a Child (that does not result in death or great bodily harm), with Moss receiving an additional charge of Contributing to the Delinquency of a Minor.
For Mrs. Greenhaus, the charges are nowhere as severe as they should be.
“[Moss] and [Baron] abused my son, they videoed it, and shared the videos,” she wrote. “Those are the FACTS. They are both equally GUILTY. I do not feel the charges they are facing are adequate.”
The crime was discovered and reported in June by Josh Greenhaus, Bricen’s father. According to a post, the father has been repeatedly punished for posting the videos on Facebook.
“I have thought long and hard about this, and have been told not to post this and not to make it go public,” he wrote. “But I simply can not do it anymore. I can’t sit back and not let this be swept under the rug any longer.”
Since then, the father was put in “Facebook jail” yet again.
According to Greenhaus, Moss was pregnant during the video involving smoking marijuana with Bricen.
The two accused child abusers are scheduled to appear for a pre-trial conference at the Farmington/Aztec District Court on October 22 at 10:30 AM.
