Vampire Bite Lands Wisconsin Babysitter in Jail

A Sheboygan County man will spend 30 days in jail after biting the toddler he was babysitting for.


SHEBOYGAN, Wis. --

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 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 said the three bite marks were clearly visible.
