Mother Admits to Breaking Toddler's Leg

A woman who admitted to breaking her 15-month-old daughter’s leg is in McKean County Jail on assault and other charges.

Papers filed in District Judge Dominic Cercone’s office say 27-year-old Leslie Skaggs of Bradford took the baby to BRMC for treatment of an abscess and, while she was been examined they determined she had a broken leg. The child was then sent to Women & Children’s Hospital in Buffalo, where they determined she had several old, healing fractures.

Tests were performed to determine if the child suffered from an abnormality of the bones that would cause the fractures, but the tests found nothing abnormal.

Court papers say that during the course of the investigation, Skaggs admitted she was responsible for the injury. Her preliminary hearing is scheduled for next week.

Very heartbreaking & horrible! Hopefully she'll get alot of time in jail to think about what she's done to AN INNOCENT BABY, & never get the chance to hurt her or any other child again!!!! It's sickening

The mother must be very sick in the head for doing that to her child. Poor child for taking the abused so badly. No one deserve this. Glad to see that the child is in care and the mother is in jail.
