DALLAS (AP) - The mother of a Dallas woman who admitted beating her 2-year-old daughter and gluing her hands to a wall has asked a judge for leniency.
Before resting their case Tuesday, prosecutors completed their questioning of Escalona's mother, Ofelia Escalona. She tearfully asked the judge for leniency in sentencing her daughter.
Ofeila Escalona said her daughter "made a mistake. She's not a monster. She needs help."
She asked the judge to sentence her daughter to probation.
A doctor testified Monday that Jocelyn was in a coma for about two days and hospitalized for about one week because of injuries that included bleeding on her brain.
