Sons burglarized neighbor but mom in trouble for punishing them

A mother found out her three sons robbed items from a neighbor's house but now she's in trouble because she whipped them with an electrical cord.

Schaquana Spears, 30, was jailed. She's now grief-stricken after her six kids were taken away from her, and sent to live with their grandmother, until Spears goes through the legal process.

Spears said her children, ages 2-13, mean everything to her and she only wanted to show them what they did was wrong. She also said she punished her kids the way her own mother taught her.

"It's been hell," Spears told a Louisiana TV station after being bailed out. "I never could imagine that trying to be a good mother would end me up in jail with a criminal record like I'm a predator out to hurt my kids who I live for. That's my world. Everything revolves around them. Everything I do is for my kids."
