Caregiver in 'Baby Fight Club' Gets 33 Months in Jail

    A former Virginia child care worker convicted on child cruelty charges in what prosecutors described as a "baby fight club" has been sentenced to nearly three years in prison.

    A jury convicted Kierra Spriggs of Woodbridge earlier this year after testimony that she and a co-worker abused numerous 2-year-olds by stepping on toes, feeding them Flamin' Hot Cheetos and making them fight each other.

    The 33-month sentence is the maximum term the judge could have imposed.

    The abuse occurred at a Minnieland Academy in 2013. The victims were a group of 2-year-olds who were cared for in what Minnieland designated its "monkey room."

    A second worker, Sarah Jordan, was also convicted on similar charges and sentenced to nearly two years in prison.
