Teen assaulted by parents over Facebook photos

A 15-year-old girl was assaulted by both of her parents after she posted promiscuous pictures of herself on Facebook.

Her father was before Cork District Court yesterday on a charge of assaulting her.

Her mother was also in court facing sentencing on a charge of assault causing harm to her.

Inspector Ronan Kennelly told the district court that the teenager’s face bore the mark of the sole of her mother’s shoe.

Inspector Kennelly told Judge Olan Kelleher it all emanated from photographs which the teenager posted of herself on social media.
