Florida children’s book author, husband charged with abusing their kids

A children’s book author and her husband have been arrested for allegedly abusing their three adopted kids, sending one of them to the hospital with injuries, Florida authorities said.

Jennifer and Joseph Wolfthal each face aggravated child abuse and child neglect charges after authorities found their children were imprisoned and abused in their Casselberry home, WFTV reported

Jennifer Wolfthal, 41, was arrested on New Year’s Day after her husband arrived at the hospital with one of the children. She was released but was arrested again Tuesday and charged with false imprisonment. 

The 8-year-old child was suffering from many conditions including pneumonia, a staph infection and liver failure. The child was also malnourished, had bruises, a skin infection and open wounds, according to an arrest report obtained by the outlet.

WESH reported the child was “critically ill” and that the mother told authorities the child’s injuries were a result of falling. The other two children were put in foster care, according to the outlet. 

Jennifer Wolfthal — who authored the book “A Real Friend” — and her 39-year-old husband allegedly locked their children in their rooms for days and weeks with no showers and little food, the arrest report states. 

Joseph Wolfthal was arrested Monday and jailed on $210,000 bond while his wife was being held without bond.
