a felony charge reduced to a misdemeanor

a women pleads GUILTY to BEATING HER DAUGHTERS (for a lesser charge of course). the abuse, goddess knows, was going on for how long? perhaps since they were in elementary school? it appears they are in high school now (or at least 2 of them are) because the article mentions a conard resource officer.

so, the woman, sandra cedeno, gets a REDUCED SENTENCE (meaning NO jail time). i have no idea how long her kids were taken away for (IF AT ALL), but obviously the kids were placed BACK IN THE HOME.

what happens then you wonder (well i know you're NOT wondering. i KNOW YOU KNOW what happens next)

good ol' sandra starts (allegedly, although this article said she again admitted to it. BUT she's not been proven guilty so i have to say allegedly) BEATING THE GIRLS AGAIN WITH A METAL BROOM HANDLE. she must have (allegedly) beaten them hard because the handle when found by the police was all bent up.

i wonder if the kids have been taken away (if good ol' sandra is out on bail)? if yes, how long is it going to be before our good ol' dcf GIVES THEM BACK TO THE ABUSER (she is an abuser as she has pled guilty at least once before)

West Hartford Woman Charged Again With Assaulting Daughters
The Hartford Courant

WEST HARTFORD - A local woman on probation for assaulting her daughters has been arrested again for assaulting the girls, police said.

Sandra Cedeno, 31, of South Quaker Lane, is charged with two counts of second-degree assault and two counts of risk of injury to a minor for allegedly beating her daughters with a metal broom handle. She was arrested Nov. 2 and posted $5,000 bail.

According to the warrant for her arrest, the social worker at Conard High School contacted the state Department of Children and Families to report the girls were being abused by their mother. A DCF investigator interviewed the girls, who said their mother had struck them in the head, back and arms with the metal broom handle for violating house rules.

One daughter was struck, she told the investigator, because she took food to her bedroom. The other was struck because her mother found that she had chewing gum, which could damage her braces.

After the DCF official substantiated the abuse, Conard's social worker contacted Officer Arthur Yepes, who is the school resource officer at Conard. Yepes wrote in the application for an arrest warrant that he could see bruises on each girl. One had bruises on her left shoulder, face and left hand. The other had bruises on her right arm and hand.
