Hand gluing mother sentenced to 99 years in prison

| No Comments

The Dallas mother who glued her two-year-old daughter's hands to a wall, has been sentenced to 99 years in prison.

Elizabeth Escalona, 23, sat motionless Friday as her verdict was delivered, reported WFAA.

"You savagely beat your child to the edge of death," said State District Judge Larry Mitchell as he read his verdict. "For this, you must be punished."

Escalona attacked two-year-old Jocelyn Cedillo because of potty-training issues. She pleaded guilty in July to felony injury to a child, said CBSNews.

"I kicked her, I hit her, I kicked her constantly," Escalona said in her defense Wednesday. "I'm not a monster. I'm not what everyone thinks I am," reported WFAA.
