A mom in Georgia took her 5-year-old son of the disease to collect disability checks, authorities say.

Teresa Lynne Roth, 34, forced her son to take 28 of the unnecessary medications and undergoing unnecessary medical treatments for almost two years, according to the researchers.

Her son, who is on numerous medications, was in a wheelchair and on a feeding tube as his parents drew disability checks for his account.

“It’s messed up, you know? It is not normal,” the Lt. Scott Ware with the Hall County Sheriff’s Office, told Boston 25.

According to the Boston 25, the case began in 2016, when the boy was taken to a hospital in Atlanta and received treatment for various diseases, which researchers now say were completely made up. As soon as the healthcare workers became suspicious of the mother, they warned the Ministry of Family and Children’s Services (DFCS), which deleted the children of the house in October 2018.

Roth, who was arrested on Thursday, has been charged with first-degree child cruelty.

Her son, who is now in DFCS custody, is reportedly doing much better.

There may be additional arrests, according to the researchers, as they learn more about the case.
