Man Sentenced for Throwing Boiling Pot on Niece


By CBS 8 News

A man is sentenced for burning his niece so severely that she lost both of her legs and an arm.


Brian Crumpton will spend five years in prison for throwing a boiling pot of collard greens on his niece, Jessie Crumpton West.


She suffered second- and third-degree burns and eventually needed both legs and part of her right arm amputated.


Brain Crumpton pleaded guilty to assault after jurors deadlocked on a more serious charge.


The judge also ordered Crumpton to pay almost 1 and-a-half million dollars in restitution.
