Daycare Worker Pleads Guilty to Assault on Child

Posted:
SALISBURY, Md.- A worker at a Salisbury church's daycare center on Monday pleaded guilty to second-degree assault in connection with an incident that injured a 3-year-old boy under her care.

Fay Bartley, 47, of Fruitland, was sentenced by a Wicomico County District Court judge to a one year suspended jail term and two years supervised probation. She will also not be allowed to have supervisory responsibility of minors and cannot work at or have a regular presence at a child care facility, according to Wicomico County Assistant State's Attorney Jamie Dykes.

Bartley was charged on a criminal summons after a video from April 3 showed Bartley yanking the 3-year-old from a time-out chair by his arm and dropping him on the floor, then placing him in a chair and straddling him. The boy was taken to an area hospital and diagnosed with a wrist sprain.

The police report states Bartley denied ever purposely harming a child and was unaware of injuries.
