North Carolina mother taken into custody for child abuse

According to a report by local news station WJZY, 27-year-old Charlotte, North Carolina resident Paulette Gibson has recently been arrested for child abuse for the second time this year after authorities accused her of using a belt to whip her 10-year-old daughter in the face and back, resulting in the child sustaining various injuries from the blows.

Police authorities said the beating took place at the home of Gibson’s relative sometime in August 2015. Gibson has since been charged with misdemeanor child abuse.

Records showed that Gibson had a prior charge of felony child abuse causing serious bodily injury in August 2014.
