HALL COUNTY, Ga. -- A jury has found a daycare worker guilty on numerous charges, including child cruelty, in a case involving a child who was badly burned.
Eddye Pittmon was one of three workers charged after the child, Damon Gaddis, apparently suffered second and third degree burns at the Discovering Basics Daycare in June 2014.
Seabolt said she took her son within the hour to the hospital, where he was diagnosed with the burns from his stomach to the bottom of his left leg. During the trial, prosecutors told jurors they believe Damon was put in a sink with scalding hot water. Police said the incident could have happened eight hours before the mother arrived to pick him up.
