Spanking leads to child abuse charges in Harrington
By Mark Fowser

A 33-year-old Harrington woman faces child abuse charges after spanking her ten-year-old child on the buttocks with a fly swatter and her hand.

Harrington Police say the Division of Family Services contacted officers about the case.

The Child Advocacy Center took part in an interview with the alleged victim, who was left with bruises.

A warrant was obtained charging the child's mother with third-degree assault and endangering the welfare of a child.

The woman turned herself in to police and was arraigned, then released on $2,000 unsecured bond.
