Couple Return 'Bad Seed' Adoptee To State

The cops were looking for Cleveland Cox, 49, and wife Lisa, 52, on a misdemeanor charge of reckless abandonment of a 9-year-old boy. They turned themselves in this morning.

The couple allegedly dumped the youth at the Butler County Children Services soon after filing a report with the Sheriff's department citing the adoptive son 'suffers from mental issues, and threatened to kill everyone in the house with a knife'.

Neighbors say the Coxes are good parents and nice people. One of them described the 9-year-old adopted boy as a 'bad seed.'

But the DA isn't buying the baloney. County Prosecutor Michael Gmoser got an arrest warrant for the couple despite ordinary misdemeanor charges.

'When you are the parent and you recklessly abandon a child or children, there are criminal consequences,' Gmoser said. ‘Children are like that box of chocolates...You really never know what you're going to get...’

Wonder if Gmoser was connecting the box of chocolates to the fact the orphan is a black kid?

The Coxes face six months in jail and a $1,000 fine if convicted. Cute twist on child-rearing - a get-your-money-back warranty on snotty and misbehaving kids. Wouldn't that be nice?
