Second Daycare Worker Convicted In 'Baby Fight Club' Case

A second caregiver at a Virginia daycare that was run like a "baby fight club" was convicted of child cruelty and other counts Thursday for abusing and neglecting children in her care.

 Kierra Spriggs, 26, was convicted of four counts of felony child cruelty and two misdemeanor assault and battery charges on Thursday.

 Spriggs was acquitted of 14 other charges, and the charges of contributing to the delinquency of a minor were dismissed because the prosecutor didn't introduce Spriggs' age. Many parents walked out of the court room in tears because they were disappointed at the number of guilty verdicts. A parent on the stand pointed at Spriggs and said, "you are a monster."

She fed toddlers flaming hot Cheetos, encouraged what a prosecutor called a "baby fight club" and traumatized children by spraying water in their faces. The other daycare worker, Sarah Jordan, was convicted last month.
