A Canadian man was sentenced after forcing his eight-year-old daughter to sit at the dinner table for 13 hours over an uneaten serving of brussels sprouts. The court heard that a heated battle over the vegetables in January 2016 resulted in the daughter not being allowed to go to the bathroom or change after she’d soiled herself. She was shivering and suffering from hypothermia and eventually agreed to eat what was left on her plate, only to vomit right after. The father pleaded guilty to one count of unlawful confinement and was sentenced to four months to be served in the community as well as having to pay a $500 charitable donation and perform community service.
