Son of Charlie Mayes

Charlie Mayes
A 16-year-old boy was physically abused by his father, military veteran Charlie Mayes. The boy was forced to carry a heavy stone for miles in hot weather as punishment for failing to do his schoolwork. The boy “had a history of problems at school” and was homeschooled.

The abuse came to light when a pizza delivery driver saw the boy walking with the stone and reported it to the authorities. Mayes was charged with child cruelty.
