WACO (January 7, 2013)-A Waco woman was sentenced to serve three years on deferred adjudication probation Monday after she pleaded guilty earlier to injury to a child.
State District Judge Ralph Strother sentenced Dynise Nicole Howard Monday.
She was arrested last March after Waco police named her in a warrant charging injury to a child in connection with an April 2012 incident during which a 3-year-old girl was struck in the face, Waco police St. W. Patrick Swanton said Monday.
Officers were sent to an address in South Waco after a request for assistance from Child Protective Services.
When police arrived they found a child with injuries to her face and eyes.
