SHEBOYGAN, Wis. (AP) — A Sheboygan man who pleaded no contest to charges that he bit a 3-year-old boy’s neck while “playing vampire” has been sentenced to 30 days in jail.

Mark R. Adams Jr. was convicted of felony child abuse. The Sheboygan Press says the 43-year-old was sentenced Tuesday.

Adams was babysitting the boy in January. He told police that after he watched a vampire-themed show he bit the boy’s neck three times while “playing vampire.” He also told investigators it was possible he said something about wanting to suck the boy’s blood.

Prosecutors say three bite marks were clearly visible.

A message left with Adams’ attorney Thursday was not immediately returned.

The criminal complaint says the mother confronted Adams, who said “I’m not a pedophile” and punched her in the face.

    Hate to break it to you, D-bag, but if biting little kids gets you off, you’re a pedophile. Though the article doesn’t mention anything about that, so I guess I shouldn’t speculate.

    “I’m not a pedophile” … Pretty sure that’s what most pedophiles say. Were you accused of being a pedophile or was this your guilty conscience talking?!?!

    30 days for felony child abuse?! This is what should be bringing out the protesters.

    The last 2 lines of the article I have to say gave me a bit of a small chuckle just because it sounds like something from a bad Jerry Springer episode. I will say that I’m a little confused as to why some 43 yr old man is babysitting some woman’s 3 yr old…were they in a relationship / neighbors / “friends” ?
