Daycare provider accused of child abuse sentenced

Shannon Perkins Daycare

A local childcare provider, caught on camera abusing a child, was sentenced Tuesday morning.

You may remember, police arrested 34-year-old Shannon Perkins in December after surveillance video caught her physically abusing a child at her in-home daycare.

Last month, she pleaded no contest to one felony count of child abuse as a part of a plea deal.

She must serve 180 days in custody and, as part of probation, is banned from running any type of childcare facility.

The state licensing board will issue a lifetime ban as well.
