A jury on Tuesday found a Tecumseh woman guilty of child abuse by injury and recommended she serve 20 years in prison.

 

 

 

Lisa L. Botone, 33, was convicted of the felony count following a trial that began last week in Pottawatomie County District Court.

 

 

 

 

Botone was accused, on or between March 25 and March 26, 2014, while being a person responsible for the health, safety and welfare of a 3-year-old, of maliciously injuring that child, reported to be her stepdaughter.

 

 

 

 

Charges alleged those injuries included multiple bruises throughout the child’s body, a subdural hematoma to her brain and paralysis to the left side of the child’s body.

 

 

 

 

After the verdict, Botone was taken into custody and booked into the Pottawatomie County Public Safety Center.
