Two Former Bellaire Baptist Learning Center Employees Charged With Cruelty to Juveniles
Two Bossier City women who worked at Bellaire Baptist Learning Center have been arrested on child cruelty charges.
Bossier City police 28-year-old Tammi Hilliard allegedly hit a two-year-old in the face when the toddler threw a toy and 49-year-old Doris Williams failed to report it. Both women have been charged with cruelty to a juvenile and two counts of simple battery. Police say Learning Center staffers went to police after a parent noticed a bruise on a child.
Five children were believed to have been involved in various incidents, including excessive spanking and being pulled or jerked around. The women have been fired from the day care.
