DaddyOFive Couple Sentenced For Neglect

Mike Martin and his wife, the “DaddyOFive” youtubers who built a channel around screaming at their kids, have been handed five years of probation.

The biological mother regained custody of two of the children in May, and the youtube couple was charged with neglect shortly afterward in August. They have now been sentenced to “a five-year suspended sentence for each charge”.

Michael and Heather Martin of Ijamsville entered Alford pleas to two counts of child neglect each…In more than 300 now-deleted videos, the Martins were seen destroying an Xbox, and berating and cursing at two of their five children…Michael Martin is seen pushing his son Cody Martin into a bookcase, giving him a bloody nose and ordering one of his stepsons to slap his daughter, Emma Martin, in what he deemed a game.

An attorney for the couple has said they will now “be careful with children and social media”.
