Convicted For Forcing Liquid In Child's Mouth

BRISTOL, Conn. -- A 36-year-old Bristol man has been sentenced to a year in prison for helping his girlfriend punish her 10-year-old son by forcing liquid soap down his throat.

John Mierzejewski pleaded guilty Wednesday to one count of second-degree strangulation. Prosecutors say he held the boy's head between his knees while his mother poured liquid dish soap down his throat.

According to court testimony, Mierzejewski held the boy after the boy used what the prosecutor says was a "bad word."
The prosecutor says the boy later coughed up blood and was taken to a hospital. Doctors say there were overt signs of strangulation.
Criminal charges against the mother are pending.
