ORANGE CITY, Iowa | A Maurice, Iowa, day care provider was sentenced Monday to five months in jail for injuring a child that was in her care.
After a four-day trial, a Sioux County jury in November found Dianna Winder, 33, guilty of child endangerment causing bodily injury and assault causing bodily injury.
District Judge Patrick Tott suspended a five-year prison sentence and ordered Winder to serve the jail term, in which she will be allowed work release. She also was placed on probation for four years during which time she will be prohibited from providing day care.
On Nov. 11, 2015, the 15-month-old child's mother noticed marks on his face when she picked him up from Winder's home. The mother took her son to the emergency room, where doctors contacted police and social workers, leading to Winder's arrest in December 2015.
