Daycare provider takes plea deal in child abuse case

Shannon Perkins Daycare

Shannon Perkins, 34, a local daycare provider, took a plea deal and was found guilty of one count of felony child abuse today. 

The plea deal will result in Perkins spending 180 days in jail, four years on supervised felony probation, and mandatory participation in child abuser’s treatment counseling program for one year. 

The agreement also has a specific term to her probation that she is unable to operate any child care facility. 

After consultation with the family of the 8-month old victim, the plea agreement was established. 

Perkins was arrested in December 2018, after surveillance video caught her physically abusing a child while in her care at her in-home daycare. 

The surveillance showed her shaking, chocking and slapping the 8-month old child.
