Nanny Beat Girl's Bare Bottom With Brush: Cops
A Joliet couple discovered their nanny had beaten their 3-year-old with a hairbrush, police said.
Judith Campbell, 56, of 102 Stryker Ave., was taken into custody at her home about 6 p.m. Tuesday and charged with the aggravated battery of a child.
Campbell was trying to give the young girl a bath when the child grabbed a bottle of high blood pressure pills off a dresser, said Joliet police Cmdr. Al Roechner.
Campbell then spanked the girl's bare buttocks with a hairbrush, Roechner said, leaving bruises.
The girl's parents later discovered the bruises and called the police, he said.
