ST. CLOUD (KNSI) - A St. Cloud man has been sentenced to 20 days in jail for mistreating two children back in Feburary.
Sixty-eight year old Waldamar Joseph Tischner sentenced today in Stearns County Court. He was seen walking the two children in harnesses, with one of the children reportedly having it wrapped around their neck.
Witnesses then claim that Tischner was seen pushing the children to the ground and grabbing them around their necks to pull them up, or jerk them around.
Tischner can serve half of his 20 day sentence with community service. He was also fined $585.00.
The children in question were attending day care operated out of his home.
Since the incident, the home's license to operate a day care has been revoked.
