Couple jailed over 40 years each for abuse of boy, 12, who escaped


Couple face more than 40 years in prison for making a 12-year-old boy wear a diaper, strangling him and starving him until he weighed just 50lbs when he escaped their RV

  • Angela Cassidy and Troy Hall were both found guilty of injury to a child in connection to the abuse, which took place over a two-year span 
  • The 12-year-old was forced to stay in a diaper
  • He was also routinely beaten and strangled
  • The preteen had been held in an RV at the Cut N Shoot RV park in Conroe, Texas
  • On May 15, 2019, the preteen escaped and only weighed 50lbs at the time
  • He has since been placed with Child Protective Services

A Texas mother and her boyfriend have been sentenced to more than four decades in prison for abusing and starving the woman’s 12-year-old son, even forcing him to wear a diaper. 

Angela Cassidy and Troy Hall were both found guilty of injury to a child in connection to the abuse, which took place over a two-year span. 

‘This case just shows us there is evil in this world,’ Shanna Redwine, chief of the special victim’s division for the Montgomery County District Attorney’s Office, said to KPRC.

According to prosecutors, the 12-year-old was forced to stay in a diaper. He was also routinely beaten and strangled, prosecutors said.    

‘He was locked in a room in a trailer, restraints were used on him, handcuffs were used we found evidence of that in our investigation and that ultimately physically abused repeatedly and not fed,’ Redwine said.

The preteen had been held in an RV at the Cut N Shoot RV park in Conroe, Texas. He escaped from the RV on May 15, 2019. 

He only weighed 50lbs at the time of his escape.

‘He found the strength and found the courage to run and to ask for help and a good Samaritan saw him, frankly, put herself in danger to step in and to make sure he would never have to go back to that home,’ Redwine said.  

Hall plead guilty to the abuse and was sentenced to 45 years while Cassidy was only sentenced to 40 years in prison. 

‘Angela Cassidy had taken this child to multiple doctors (and) never reported the abuse, which she knew was going on never sought any help,’ Redwine said.

The child is slowly getting better and gaining weight after he was placed in the care of Child Protective Services, prosecutors shared.
