Dallas mother sentenced to 99 years for gluing toddler’s hands to the wall
A 23-year-old Dallas woman received a sentence of 99 years on Friday for charges related to beating her toddler and gluing the child’s hands to the wall.
According to the Associated Press, Elizabeth Escalona was arrested after authorities reported her in September 2011 because police reported she “kicked her daughter in the stomach, beat her with a milk jug, then stuck her hands to an apartment wall with an adhesive commonly known as Super Glue.”
She pleaded guilty to a felony of child injury in July.
“Only a monster glues her daughter’s hands to the wall,” Dallas County prosecutor Eren Price reportedly said during the hearing.
The daughter, Jocelyn, is in the custody of grandmother, Ofelia Escalona, who is caring for her daughter’s four other children as well.
