Boot camp inmate may go to prison

A Wichita Falls woman who was given a boot camp "shock treatment" sentence then released on probation, could be going back to prison to finish serving her sentence.  

35-year-old Tameka Willis was  given 10 years in 2013 for injury to a child and the sentence was suspended to probation with the first few months spent in prison as part of the shock probation program.

That is a program that tries to shock convicts into going straight. Willis was released from her boot camp term to serve the remainder of her probation but was back in jail Wednesday for allegedly violating numerous terms.
Among them, the district attorney's office alleges she was using marijuana.   The motion to revoke states Willis' urine tested positive for marijuana three times since January of 2016.
It asks that Willis is found in violation and be sent back to prison for not less than 2 years or more than 10 years.

Willis was arrested in 2012 in the 3700 block of Seymour Road after witnesses told police she had beaten her children for several hours and put a pair of scissors to a child's chest.
She was charged with aggravated assault, two counts of injury to a child and one count of resisting arrest.
