A couple in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, have been sentenced to 5-7 years of probation for waterboarding their 12-year-old daughter.
Malisa and Dion Stevens reportedly used the waterboarding as punishment for their daughter. They entered a plea deal that led to the probation and the possibility of reuniting the family under supervision.
Police say the girl was taped into a chair with packing tape. Her hands were tied behind her back and rags were shoved into her mouth. Then, the girl said water was poured over her mouth to keep her from screaming and breathing.
They allegedly got the idea from a movie.
