SAN ANTONIO, Tx. – A 34-year-old woman will spend the next two years in federal prison after she pleaded guilty to tearing her young son’s genitals and then using glue to try and fix the wound.

Jennifer Vargas pleaded guilty to the crime.

It’s not clear why Vargas became so angry that she grabbed the boy’s genitals.

The injury was discovered when the 6-year-old boy’s father came home and found the child crying in his room.

The boy had surgery but is now ok, according to officials.
