CANANDAIGUA, NY (WKBW) - A Canandaigua mother and her live-in boyfriend are facing charges for endangering the welfare of a child after they wrote derogatory words on the woman's blind child's forehead.

The Ontario County Sheriff's Department reports that Cecilia Pierson, 31, and her live-in boyfriend, 29-year-old Jeremy Bailey, wrote derogatory words in marker on the forehead of Pierson's blind child.

The child, age 10, was then sent to summer school with the marker still on his head.

Pierson and Bailey have been charged with Endangering the Welfare of a Child, and were issued appearance tickets to appear in Canandaigua Town Court at a later date.
