NORTHWOOD, Ohio — A Wood County couple is in jail and facing charges after tying up a child for more than nine hours.

Jason and Tabetha Sosnowicz were arrested July 22 at the Baymont Hotel on Oregon Road in Northwood. According to court documents, police received a call that a child may have been tied up in one of the rooms.

An officer found Tabetha’s 12-year-old son with his wrists tied behind his back with shoelaces. Her wrists were tied to her ankles.

Jason is the boy’s stepfather and was in the hotel room when the police arrived. Tabetha arrived soon after.

The two adults told police they usually tied the boy up at night to prevent him from eating candy while they slept. The family was living at the hotel at the time of the events.

The boy was tied up at 3 a.m. on July 22. Officers found him still tied up at 12:30 p.m.

Both are charged with child endangerment, a third degree felony. They are due to appear Thursday morning for a preliminary hearing.

Jason is being held on $75,000 bond and Tabetha is being held on $25,000 bond.
