Day Care Worker Sentenced to Prison for Abuse

A 42-year-old former day care worker was sentenced Friday to a year in prison for breaking the arms of two children at a learning center in 2009. Once released from prison, she must remain under state supervision for another year. The two children both suffered spiral fractures in their arms, the result of severe twisting.

In one incident, she twisted the arms of a 4-month-old boy to make him stop crying. About a month later, she picked up a 22-month-old girl by the arms, reportedly to make her listen. She told police she wanted to send the girl a message of pain for refusing to wash her hands. She withdrew her guilty plea at an earlier hearing, then decided to leave her plea agreement intact.
