Mom gets 99 years in prison for gluing tot's hands
DALLAS — A Dallas woman who beat her 2-year-old daughter and glued the toddler's hands to a wall because she was struggling with potty training was sentenced Friday to 99 years in prison.
Family members in the courtroom sobbed loudly as the judge announced Elizabeth Escalona's punishment. Escalona pleaded guilty in July to felony injury to a child, but her mother and sister had asked the court for leniency on her behalf.
Dallas County prosecutor Eren Price said the 23-year-old mother of five had not taken responsibility for her actions.
