SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) - A Brandon day care provider accused of causing a traumatic injury to a 15-month-old child in her care has pleaded not guilty.

The Argus Leader reports (https://argusne.ws/1FZcEnR ) that 30-year-old Sara Watters appeared in court Thursday on felony charges of aggravated battery of an infant and abuse or cruelty to a child.

Authorities say medical personnel responded to a 911 call from Watters on Oct. 9 and found the boy unresponsive. Police say his injuries were consistent with non-accidental trauma.

The child’s mother says the boy is in an in-patient rehab center where doctors are working to get him to move his head again.

Watters is free on a $20,000 cash bond.
