Upon arrival of deputies on scene at approximately 6:31P.M., they discovered a juvenile female with numerous areas of redness and bruising about her body.

Upon getting inside their residence, the mother used a leather belt with a metal buckle to punish the child for unknown reasons. During the punishment, the juvenile did receive the red marks and bruising on her face, neck, arms, shoulders, stomach and front of her thighs. The juvenile was later able to return to the grandparent’s residence, where Law Enforcement was notified.
