Watkins to Appeal Sentence

A convicted child abuser will be transferred back to Enterprise later this month with the hope of overturning her conviction.

Former daycare owner Julie Watkins pled guilty in July to the assault of Jake Garrett.

In 2005, the child suffered possible brain damage from baby shaking syndrome.

Watkins is serving 15 years in Tutwiler Women's Prison for the assault on Garrett.

She'll ask the court that a new trial be granted.

The defendant's initial attorney in the case has withdrawn from further representing her.
