Two Delaware day care workers charged with encouraging and videotaping a fight between two 3-year-old boys in their care pleaded guilty to assault and conspiracy charges Wednesday.
Estefania Myers and Lisa Parker pleaded guilty in Kent County Superior Court. The judge sentenced Myers to 10 years in prison, but suspended the sentence for one year of probation, during which she cannot work or volunteer in a day care facility. Parker's sentencing is set for Jan. 30.
Authorities suspended a Delaware day care after three adults at the day care allegedly encouraged a couple of 3-year-olds to fight one another.
A third co-defendant, Tiana Harris, has been offered the same plea deal but has yet to accept it. Her trial is tentatively scheduled for Monday unless she accepts the plea at a final case review that day.
As part of her plea agreement, Myers agreed to testify at Harris' trial if needed.
The tike fight took place in March at the Hands of Our Future LLC Daycare at 868 S State St. in Dover, according to Dover Police.
Police say cell phone video shows three women working at the day care encouraging the kids to fight.
