Va. woman ordered to refrain from spanking child

STAFFORD, Va. — A judge says a Stafford woman can have a child cruelty case dropped against her if she refrains from spanking her daughter.

The Free Lance-Star reports Stafford Circuit Judge Michael Levy didn’t impose a conviction that had been reached by a prosecutor and the attorney for Felisha KimbleTanks. Instead, the judge said the case will be dismissed in two years if KimbleTanks stays out of trouble and doesn’t use corporal punishment.

Prosecutor Tara Mooney says KimbleTanks’ 6-year-old daughter had bruises on her thigh after she was hit with a leather belt in January.

Mooney says KimbleTanks admitted striking the child because of misconduct in school but said she didn’t intend to bruise her.
