    MONTPELIER — A 42-year-old St. Johnsbury man has been given five years’ probation after he pleaded guilty to forcing his 14-year-old son to shovel snow and exercise outside barefoot and wearing a T-shirt, resulting in frostbite.

    Robert A. Stone Jr. was convicted of aggravated domestic assault on his son. Temperatures were below freezing in mid-January last year when the boy was outside.

    Stone pleaded guilty in the criminal division of the Caledonia Superior Court.

    Under the terms of his probation, he got a five-year deferred sentence, must have mental health counseling, take a parenting education course and not engage in violent or threatening behavior.
