Abusive Mom Who Glued Tot’s Hands Receives 99-year Jail Sentence
A Dallas mother who brutally beat her two-year old daughter and then glued the child’s hands to the wall has been sentenced to a 99-year jail term, reports CBS.
Elizabeth Escalona, 23, said she was angry over the child’s inability to properly use the toilet.
Prosecutors sought a sentence of at least 45 years incarceration, although the judge had the option of giving the disturbed mother probation with counseling.
Escalona was charged with felony injury to a child in the summer of 2011 after admitting to hitting her with a jug and kicking her violently in the stomach prior to using a super glue solution to glue her tiny hands to a wall.
As a result of her injuries, her daughter, Jocelyn Cedillo, was hospitalized in a comatose state for several days, suffering from bleeding in the brain and bruises all over her body.
There is no word whether the toddler suffered permanent injuries or whether Escalona would appeal the sentencing.
