JOHNSON COUNTY, Ind. (WISH) – A Johnson County woman who cut a man’s genitals with a box cutter back in December will not be receiving any jail time.

According to officials, Bonita Vela, 35, pleaded guilty to confinement and battery. On Thursday, she was sentenced to 10 months on home detention with GPS and six months of probation. Vela will also be required to take an anger control evaluation.

According to a police report, Vela told police she thought the victim, who was her daughter’s boyfriend, had molested her two-year-old son. The man told police he had never touched the boy.

Vela and two other people held him in a trailer for more than three hours before cutting him, according to police. Vela said she wanted him to see a scar every time he had sex.

Vela admitted to smoking pot before the incident happened.
