He is facing charges of failure to report suspected child abuse or neglect.
All the children were taken into DCF custody.Brian Hall, Daytona Beach Man who is hopefully getting ass-raped on a daily basis in prison, as the karmatic devices of the universe unfurl their poetic balancing act.

Back in April of 2016, Daytona Beach police reported that Barefoot took a forklift from behind a Best Buy around 4 in the morning.
