Guilty plea from father whose son pulled his own teeth

    Nine months after it all began, the case of the dad whose son pulled his own teeth has reached an end.

    Francisco Torres of Easton pleaded guilty today to endangering another person after his son resorted to pulling his own teeth in January to relieve pain, the Express-Times reports.

    Torres told the court he’d procrastinated in finding dental assistance for his son. The 14-year-old underwent surgery to remove the tooth fragments left after removing the teeth.
