Poultney mom accused of child abuse

Posted: Updated:

Prosecutors say a Poultney mom caused serious injuries to her young child.

Sandra Eastman, 30, pleaded not guilty to breaking her 11-month-old daughter's leg in February.

The Rutland Herald reports Eastman says she accidentally dropped the girl, but doctors say that story doesn't match the baby's injuries.

Her daughter is currently in state custody. If convicted of the misdemeanor child cruelty charge, Eastman could face up to two years in prison.
