A 37-year-old Wichita Falls woman is sentenced for hitting a 5-year-old girl who was under her care.

April Hall was given a 12 month sentence for child endangerment.

She was also sentenced to 12 months for theft that occurred after her original charge of injury to a child in September.

Those sentences will be served concurrently.

Hall was arrested after school employees reported the girl had injuries to her face.

Police say the girl told them her “God Mommy” hit her in the face, and told her not to tell anyone.

Officers also say the girl had an older bruise above an eye that was healing.

Detectives say Hall claimed the girl was lying and that she was injured while getting out of the bathtub.

Police say the girl had been living with Hall for about a month, and had not seen her mother in that time.

Hall has a previous conviction for felony child abuse in Tulsa in 1999.
