Iowa woman gets prison for beating 6-year-old

Posted: Updated:
DAVENPORT, Iowa -- A day care provider has been sent to prison for beating a 6-year-old girl in Davenport.
    
The Quad-City Times says 34-year-old Christine Pickering had pleaded guilty to child endangerment with bodily injury. Court records say Pickering was sentenced last week to five years in prison.
    
The crime occurred Nov. 7. An arrest affidavit says Pickering used a folder and one of her hands to hit the child several times, causing a black eye and a bleeding cut on the child's right cheek.
    
The affidavit says Pickering was upset with the girl because she didn't do well on a math test.
