A Hephzibah mother was jailed for first-degree child cruelty on Saturday for allegedly beating her 5-year-old son severely, authorities said.
Madeline Boresow, 32, is accused of causing physical pain to her son during a beating Friday morning at the family’s residence. They live at Reasonable Living Mobile Home Park on Deans Bridge Road.
Boresow struck the victim “multiple times on his back and face with a closed hand,” according to an arrest warrant.
“The victim sustained a busted lip, bruising to the right side of his face, neck, back and right shoulder and swelling to his face,” the warrant says.
Boresow remained in the Richmond County Detention Center on Sunday afternoon without bond.
No Criminal History. Boresow has no criminal history in Richmond County, but she accused two different men of severely beating her and damaging her cars in 2018.
In March 2018, Boresow claimed Anthony Bernard Williams became physically aggressive and grabbed her by her hair. She claimed that he pushed her down to the ground and made threats to kick her. Boresow stated that Williams then grabbed her face with his right hand causing an injury, a report says.
A deputy observed a long, thin scratch on the left side of her neck. Boresow also stated that as Williams left the scene, his black Lexus GS300 struck the left side of her gray 2010 Chevrolet Equinox.
It took authorities over a year and a half to arrest Williams for domestic violence. He was arrested on Jan. 13, 2020, and the charges were dismissed against him two days later, according to online records.
In October 2018, she told authorities that ex-boyfriend Lester Moultrie drove from Duluth to try to reconcile with her and rekindle their relationship. But she got a call from his girlfriend and got mad, telling Moultrie to leave. She told deputies that Moultrie grabbed her and began striking her face. She stated that Moultrie picked up a large rock and threw it at her vehicle causing the window to break. A deputy found her with “some swelling and redness around her left eye,” a report says.
Moultrie was charged with domestic violence and trespassing a few weeks later, but his charges remain pending in the court system without resolution.
