Dad convicted of burning hands of 2-year-old son in boiling water during visitation (San Leandro, California)

These days, FRs would tell you that the solution to fathers like DANTE ROBERTSON is to give them FULL custody. 'Cause somehow they were "frustrated" or something but wouldn't be if they had full control and were able to fully punish Mother as she deserved. Yea, I know. Pure bullcrap.

How about no access? No access=no abuse. But we're told that's "simplistic." Seems to me that it makes more sense than constantly "involving" sh**s like this father and somehow believing that some fantasy goodness will come out of it all.

OAKLAND -- A San Leandro father was convicted Wednesday of felony child abuse for burning his 2-year-old son's hands with boiling hot water in 2011.

Jurors deliberated for two and a half days before finding Dante Roberson, 43, guilty of child abuse resulting in great bodily injury. Roberson, who had been free on $100,000 bail, was taken into jail custody after the verdict was read Wednesday afternoon.

The child is still undergoing treatment from the skin on his hands being melted off from hot water while under Roberson's care in September 2011. The boy's mother, who had primary custody, was not home when it happened.

A doctor testified at Roberson's trial that the child's injuries were the result of "forced submersion," according to a prosecutor.

A sentencing date will be picked Thursday.
