PHOENIX (AP) — The owner of a Phoenix day care was sentenced to probation after he was convicted last year of failing to accurately report a child’s injury to law enforcement.
KNXV-TV reports Ruben Sandoval was sentenced Tuesday to a year of probation after authorities say he did not tell police that a Brighter Angels Learning Center employee had hit a child twice with a broom handle in February 2017.
Sandoval was also fined $950 and ordered to complete 130 hours of community service.
Sandoval was initially charged with felony hindering prosecution and failing to report after the nearly 21-month-old child was injured. Phoenix police also arrested the employee and the day care’s director.
