Mother who glued daughter's hands to wall: 'I'm not a monster'
Story here. Excerpt:
'A 23-year-old Texas mother who beat her daughter and glued her hands to a wall told a Dallas judge on Wednesday that she was a monster a year ago, but she has changed.
"Elizabeth Escalona is not a monster," she said of herself, according to a tweet by Dallas Morning News' crime reporter Scott Goldstein. "I want everybody to know that I'm not a monster. I love my kids. I love my babies."
Escalona pleaded guilty in July to first-degree injury to a child, a felony. Prosecutors are seeking a 45-year prison sentence.
She cried as she recounted what she did to her daughter, according to Goldstein: "I hit her, I kicked her constantly and she didn't deserve that.”
She described a grim home life -- four of her children slept on a sofa because a mattress was infested with bed bugs.
Her mother, Ofelia Escalona, has stood by her daughter and now cares for Escalona's five children, including Jocelyn, who has recovered.
On the stand, Ofelia Escalona burst into tears and said, “I wish as a mother that I had done more to protect my daughter.” She pleaded with the judge to show her daughter mercy.'
