CHARLESTON,SC--A Charleston family could tell something was up when their normally friendly pup turned aggressive toward the babysitter.
After five months of the dogs defensive behavior towards their son, his parents set up a camera to record while they were away.
The dad says he heard cursing and slapping on the tape.
"His crying changes from a distress cry to a pain cry, "To know that five months i handed my child to a monster, not knowing what was going on in my house for that day," says Benjamin Jordan.
The sitter confessed to the crime and she will spend up to three years in prison and be placed on a child abuse registry.
