Woman Squirts Hot Sauce into Son's Mouth As Punishment, Could Face Jail Time

​​Guess time-outs and revoked dinners don't cut it these days.  

To punish her misbehavin' son for lying about getting in trouble in school, Alaska mom Jessica Beagley did the unthinkable.

The act was caught on videotape--one that Beagly made herself--which also showed her forcing the boy to stand in a cold shower for sword-fighting with pencils in school. The 36-year-old adoptive mother was convicted of child abuse, a misdemeanor, after prosecutors argued that the video was a ploy to get some airtime on Dr. Phil, where she was a guest in a January segment titled "Mommy Confessions."

Beagly could face up to one year in jail, a $10,000 fine and up to 10 years of probation when she is sentenced Monday. 

AP gives the whole backstory, but it leaves out some very important information. 

How hot was the hot sauce? 

If it's anything like this, well, that's just cruel and unusual. 

And how did the hot sauce taste? 

If it was Del Scorcho or Sriracha . . . more, please, mama!
