Pa. mom pleads guilty to using 4-week-old baby as weapon to hit boyfriend, injuring child
ERIE, Pa. -- A woman pleaded guilty Tuesday to swinging her 4-week-old son like a bat to hit her boyfriend during a fight, fracturing the infant's skull in the process.
Chytoria Graham, 27, pleaded guilty to aggravated assault and endangering the welfare of a child under a plea agreement with prosecutors.
By pleading guilty, Graham acknowledged that on Oct. 8 she grabbed her son Jarron by his feet and swung him, hitting her boyfriend and seriously injuring the child.
At Graham's preliminary hearing in December, paramedic Betty Schau, who treated the baby, recalled that Graham was crying and disheveled when medical crews arrived. She testified that Graham told her, "I swung him. I swung him like a bat."
The judge ordered a psychological examination for Graham before her sentencing, set for May 8. The aggravated assault charge carries a minimum of five years in prison because the child was under age 13. The maximum sentence is 20 years, prosecutor Beth Hirz said. The maximum sentence for endangering the welfare of a child is five years. Two lesser charges were dropped.

I am missing the Brady connection - other than the poor infant was the ''weapon''.
As to the event - I cannot comment safely on this forum .

just another example of people will use anything, and can and have, as a weapon, and any means to control WHAT they use is pointless

20-25 years just isn't long enough for this broad. She needs to be sterilized and just simply left to rot in prison for this.
The worst part is that she will get out for good behavior, get pregnant again and have yet another child in her care. Quite likely will wind up being a societal burden.

Ban children. Particularly the .50cal payload variety like this kid.
Yup. That'll do it. In a single generation, guaranteed 100% effective. About what Brady & Co. would propose, if it were to adhere to its fine standards and justifications.
