MASSACHUSETTS — Two young babysitters are facing charges after they allegedly posted a Snapchat of themselves putting an infant inside a refrigerator.
The teen girls, whose identities have not been released, were watching the child Monday at a Danvers-area home when they filmed the video, according to reports.
The footage shows the girls place the baby in the refrigerator, close the door, and laugh while the infant screams.
The girls, who are from Swampscott, were taken into custody on Tuesday after the video was reported to the Department of Children and Families.
They both face charges of child endangerment and assault and battery with a dangerous weapon.
According to a recent ComScore study, millennials spend 61-percent of their online time in smartphone apps for their mobile devices, compared to only 8 percent on the mobile web. Millennials report using their desktop only a quarter of the time, and only 5 percent on tablets. The study also confirms that Snapchat is very popular, with two thirds of millennials using the app.
Snapchat fame is also criminal in use by non-millennials as well. On Thursday, we reported about a Michigan mother of two getting sentenced to 15 years in jail after using nude Snapchats to lure two teenagers into having sex with her.
The Daily Mail reported that 38-year-old Brooke Lajiness of Lima Township has been sentenced by a Washtenaw County judge to 15 years in prison on Monday, after she pled guilty to two counts of statutory rape, one for having sexual intercourse with a 14-year-old and another for having oral sex with a 15-year-old.
