SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) - Police in Sioux Falls say a day care provider is facing a felony charge after injuring a 4-month-old boy while under her supervision.
Police spokesman Sam Clemens says 59-year-old Karen Leraas has been charged with abuse or cruelty to a minor under 7. She is expected to appear in court Tuesday afternoon.
Clemens says Leraas injured the boy at her in-home day care Aug.7. Doctors contacted authorities after deeming the boy’s injuries suspicious. He is still at a local hospital.
Clemens says the boy is “doing better.”
Leeras’ day care license has been suspended.
