A York County lawmaker says a father's plea has prompted him to propose a ban on human branding procedures on young people.

Rep. Keith Gillespie said the measure was prompted by his conversation with the father of a 14-year-old boy who branded himself twice on the torso with a red-hot three-inch nail under the instructions of an 18-year-old during a sleepover.
