Woman Convicted Of Running A ‘Baby Fight Club’ – As Outraged Community Screams For Justice!
A second day care teacher was convicted of child cruelty on Thursday for despicable acts of abuse against the very two-year-olds she was paid to take care of. The prosecutor of the case described these incidents as ‘baby fight club’.
Kierra Spriggs, 26, of Woodbridge, was convicted on four counts of felony child cruelty and two misdemeanor counts of assault and battery after a two-week jury trial in Prince William County.
Two other teachers in the classroom testified that Spriggs systemically mistreated the toddlers, including encouraging twin sisters to fight each other.
One teacher testified that Spriggs fed a Flamin’ Hot Cheeto to a toddler, leaving the girl gasping for air.
The teachers also said Spriggs stepped on kids’ toes and laughed, and put rubber bands on their hands and snapped them, making the toddlers cry.
The jury acquitted Spriggs on 14 counts, and the judge threw out three misdemeanor convictions for contributing to the delinquency of a minor because he said prosecutors failed to introduce evidence that Spriggs was over the age of 18, a necessary element of that crime.
Later Thursday, a jury recommended jail sentences of three to 12 months on the various counts, adding up to a potential sentence of nearly three years when Spriggs is sentenced in May. Spriggs is the second teacher convicted in the ‘baby fight club’ case.
What the hell is wrong with her? This is the kind of thing a sadist does. That, or a sociopath…or both. It’s always a risky business when other people are taking care of your child. You really just don’t know who people are.
