Randy Swopes, 52, from Waukegan, Illinois, has accepted a plea deal, and acknowledged that he took a needle and thread to his son’s buttocks. This will help him stay out of prison. Instead he will serve 24 months of probation and 250 hours of public service for the incident, that occurred in 2008.

Swopes’ teenage son, who was 14 at the time of the incident, was suffering from Crohn’s disease. According to the U.S. National Library of Medicine, Crohn’s disease is an autoimmune disorder in which the body’s immune system destroys healthy tissue. Instead of taking his son to the hospital and ensuring that he was given appropriate medical care, Swopes tried to sew it himself, owing to which, the wound got infected which saw him in hospital for almost a month.

Swopes was charged with aggravated battery and had he not accepted a plea deal, could have ended up spending between two and five years in Prison.


Assistant State’s Attorney Danielle Pascucci told the Lake County News-Sun that Swopes accepting the plea is not a direct admission of guilt, but an admission that there is enough proof to convict.
