'DaddyOFive' Parents Charged With Child Neglect Over YouTube Videos

By Mark Pygas

Back in April, popular YouTube family known as DaddyOFive became the center of child abuse allegations. The allegations surround a seven-minute long video, which was quickly deleted, which showed the couple spilling disappearing ink on one of their children’s carpet. They proceeded to call the child to the bedroom, and blamed the mess on him, before revealing to the wailing child that it was a "prank."

Mike and Heather Martin went on to lose custody of two of their five children, Cody and Emma, to their biological mother, Rose Hall. On May 1st, a judge granted emergency custody of the two children, with Frederick County police enforcing the order. 

And now, Mike and Heather Martin have been charged with child neglect. The Maryland couple face two charges of mistreating two children between November 2016 and April 2017. Prosecutors filed the charges on July 27th.
