PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) - A nurse practitioner who was hired to babysit a developmentally disabled boy has pleaded guilty to assaulting the 9-year-old while his parents went on a rare night out.

Attorney General Peter Kilmartin says 49-year-old Kimberly Faneuf, of Cumberland, pleaded guilty Tuesday to the 2013 assault at the family’s home in Cranston.

She was sentenced to serve 18 months in prison.

Kilmartin’s office says the boy’s parents had set up a camera in his bedroom to monitor him because he was prone to seizures. When they checked the camera while at dinner, they saw Faneuf grab their son, assault him and toss him onto his bed.

Faneuf told police that she was overworked and tired.

Her nursing license was suspended.
