Mom Who Glued Daughter’s Hands to Wall Gets 99 Years

Prosecutors were seeking 45 years in the case of Elizabeth Escalona, 23, who pleaded guilty July 12 to first-degree injury to a child after admitting to beating her 2-year-old daughter Jocelyn and gluing her hands to a wall in September of last year. A district judge, however, nearly doubled that sentence, sending the mother to prison for 99 years Friday. A charge of first-degree injury to a child carries a sentence of five years to life.
