DENVER (AP) - A former Denver Human Services caseworker accused of falsifying reports in the case of a 2-month-old girl who was hospitalized with skull fractures and later died has pleaded guilty.

The Denver District Attorney’s Office announced Wednesday that 27-year-old Rotchana Madera pleaded guilty last week to forgery and official misconduct. She was given a two-year deferred sentence on the forgery count and two concurrent years of probation for the misconduct count.

Madera was accused of entering false information in the official case tracking system about her work on an assigned case last year.

Colorado Child Protection Ombudsman Dennis Goodwin has said there was no record that Madera did a house visit or saw the victim as she indicated in her reports. Investigators say she was behind in her work.
