LAWTON, OK (KSWO) -Lawton woman pleads guilty to child abuse

A Lawton woman is behind bars and awaiting sentencing for the abuse of two young children.

21-year-old Ashley Jackson pleaded guilty today to two counts of child abuse by injury. Police say last year she beat and injured her boyfriend’s 4-year-old and 3-year-old, even sending the 4-year-old to the hospital for a broken arm. According to court records, the hospital noticed several bruises on the 4-year-old’s face and body. The child told police Jackson hit her on several occasions, calling her a, quote, “mean person who breaks her heart.” Jackson’s sentencing is set for November.
