Cruel Punishment? Cleveland Man Locks His Daughter In Dryer & Turns It On!
CLEVELAND, Ohio — Steve McClairin,36, is accused of placing his seven-year-old daughter in the dryer, shutting the door, and turning it on.
McClairin was arraigned Wednesday morning on a handful of charges, including two counts of endangering children, felonious assault, kidnapping and domestic violence.
Prosecutors say the accusations in this story are horrific.
“There’s no explaining this type of activity, why any individual would place any human being or any animal or anything in a dryer is unexplainable and to a normal thinking person, there’s no explanation and obviously this man has issues,” said Mike O’Malley, First Assistant to Cuyahoga County Prosecutor Bill Mason.
Prosecutors say the child told a teacher at her school that her father put her in the dryer. The school contacted children’s services and charges were filed.
The seven-year-old girl has a condition that prevents her from growing and prosecutors say she’s only about three feet tall. They also say this was not the first time she was placed in the dryer.
“If you’re capable of putting your child in a clothes dryer you’re probably capable of a lot of horrible things,” said O’Malley.
McClairin remains in jail on $250,000 bond. A pre-trial is scheduled for January 12th.
McClairin faces up to 33 years behind bars.
