Registered sex-offender dad charged with felony cruelty toward a child; stepson shot in chest with BB gun (Port St. Lucie, Florida)

Registered sex-offender dad CHRISTOPHER FRED CADY has been jailed and charged with felony cruelty towards a child. Seems Daddy thought it would be a good idea to to chasten his stepson for shooting his cousin by shooting the stepson himself in the chest. Fine lesson you've imparted in morality and self-control, there, Dad...That's sure teaching the boy the right path, huh? Shoot people in the chest as a way to demonstrate correct behavior. Riggght. Seems Daddy also got nailed for failing to report a change of name or address as a sex offender. Gosh, really sucks to be you right now, doesn't it?

Port St. Lucie, FL, United States (AHN) - A 39-year-old man is behind bars after allegedly shooting his stepson in the chest with a BB gun. The incident occurred on Christmas Day as the father figure was trying to teach the boy a lesson, according to reports.

Authorities charged Christopher Fred Cady, a registered sex-offender with felony cruelty toward a child without great harm.

Investigators reportedly said the boy received a pellet gun as a Christmas gift and took it outside to play with it. While outside the boy reportedly shot his autistic cousin in the buttocks.

Cady reportedly took the gun from the boy and proceeded to shoot the boy in the chest in an effort to show him that it hurt to be shot with a pellet gun. Cady's step-son suffered minor injuries, and a bruise on his chest where he was shot, according to reports.

After being charged, Cady served time in the St. Lucie County jail in lieu of posting the $500 bail for the child-abuse charge. He was also being held without bail because he failed to report a change in address or name as a sex offender.
