Memphis mother accused of beating son because of bad grades

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (WREG) -- A Memphis mother is charged of beating her 6-year-old son so badly, he had to be taken to the hospital.

Memphis Police told WREG last month, the boy kept throwing up at school and was sluggish.

The child ended up at Le Bonheur Children’s Hospital where doctors found the boy had cuts, a cracked skull, and a damaged pancreas.
The child’s body was punched, kicked and he had been whipped in the face.

He reportedly told police he was beaten because he received a ‘needs improvement’ for conduct on his report card.

Green was arrested and charged with aggravated child abuse and is out on a $25,000 bond.
