A father of two was sentenced to three months in prison on Wednesday because he fed his kids Coca-Cola.
According to the Sowetan, a French father was arrested after it came to light he almost only fed his children, age three and four, the sugary beverage.
The man, who has been described as illiterate because he can not read, count or write, failed to comprehend the seriousness of the situation. However, the court felt otherwise and he received three months behind bars in Limoges, central France.
Briefly.co.za learned the family received grants from the government but the dad used it all on booze- leaving the kids and their mom with nothing to eat.
The kids' teeth reportedly started to rot from the 'cake and coke' he fed them and their living arrangement was a nightmare.
Bruno Robinet, the deputy public prosecutor, revealed their flat was empty and the children were forced to sleep on mattresses without bedding on.
There was also no toy in sight. Aside from being neglectful, the man was also described as being violent towards his wife and kids.
