In Florida, a 34-year-old father is being held in Hillsborough County Jail on charges of mental and physical abuse of his daughter. Jose Ajpacaja-Ajiataz says that his daughter had stolen jewelry from Wal-Mart and then played a Game Boy without asking.
Ajpacaja-Ajiataz admits that he shaved off her hair, but insists he did not beat her with a belt as the charges claim. Starting on Friday night, it is alleged that he had beaten his daughter with a belt for her punishment.
On Saturday it is alleged that he continued to punish her. This time the punishment was having her hair shaved off so that she could learn that what she had done was wrong.
