David Daggett Speaks to WFMY News 2 on Discipline, Abuse, Family & The Law

September 16th, 2014 Child Abuse,Public Relations

On Friday, September 12th, the National Football League was once again rocked by news that star player Adrian Peterson had surrendered himself to authorities in Texas pending charges of Reckless or Negligent Injury to a Child. Peterson is alleged to have harshly disciplined his four year-old son to the point that medical intervention became necessary.

In light of these developments, Greensboro’s own WFMY News 2 turned to the experts to help shed some light on this complicated issue.

David Daggett of Daggett Shuler Law and Susan Spidell, Director of Piedmont Support Services of North Carolina appeared on WFMY News 2 to speak with anchor Frank Mickens and offer their insights.

In the clip below, you can watch David Daggett and Susan Spidell discuss when the line between “discipline” and “child abuse” is crossed, and what role, if any, corporal punishment should play in our society today.

 

Michael Clark of Daggett Shuler Law represented my family in our wrongful death case. I found he and his staff to be kind and supportive. Not only did he hear me but most importantly he listened to me and heard my issues. He showed deep respect for the loss of my husband and he treated me with respect and dignity. He was persistent in pursuing the facts and presenting the case. He went above and beyond and did everything he could to ensure a good outcome. My special thanks to Rana Holcombe for the many phone calls. She was always available and just talking to her helped reduce my anxiety and depression. She kept me focused and supportive through the most difficult time of my life. I am so grateful that Daggett Shuler Law took our case.
