DOVER, Del. - Two day-care workers charged with encouraging and videotaping a fight between two 3-year-old boys in their care pleaded guilty Wednesday to felony assault and conspiracy charges.
Estefania Myers, 21, and Lisa Parker, 47, were arrested after the March 6 incident at Hands of Our Future day care center.
Superior Court Judge Robert Young sentenced Myers to 10 years in prison but suspended the sentence for one year of probation, during which she cannot work or volunteer in a day-care facility. Parker's sentencing is set for Jan. 30, following a presentencing investigation requested by prosecutors.
A third defendant, Tiana Harris, 20, has been offered a plea deal but has yet to accept it, said Deputy Attorney General Susan Schmidhauser. - AP
