A 20 year old woman from Raleigh, North Carolina is facing charges of assault and misdemeanor child abuse after punching her 1-year-old son in the face, resisting arrest from a public officer, and assaulting a government official, according to an arrest warrant. The woman also punched another woman in the face during the incident.
Kimberly Aguilar is accused of punching her 1 year old son in the face, causing him to suffer from a bloody nose, cuts on his face, and a busted lip. She is currently being held on a $200,000 bond. In the past, she has been arrested for assault with a deadly weapon and a simple assault. Both instances happened between 2011 and 2013, according to WTKR. She is spending time in the Wake County Jail under $20
Kimberly Aguilar joins a growing number of adults that have committed the heinous crime of child abuse in Raleigh, according to WRAL. A 21-year-old man seriously injured his three month old child and Tocarreo Meshawn Johnson Was arrested for intentional child abuse that cause serious bodily injury. The child’s wounds resulted in a frontal subdural hematoma on both sides of the three year old infant’s brain. He is currently being held on $500,000 bond.
Another man, Antonio Perez-Santos, was pulled over with an alcohol limit of 0.13 with two of children in his vehicle.
In each of the cases above, the children have survived and are expected to fully recover from the trauma they received, both physical and mental. unlike Aaliyah Berard from Orange County, Florida, who died after her mother slammed her onto the ground after a stressful day at work, all because the young child would not sit still during a diaper change.
Kimberly Aguilar was scheduled to appear in court on Monday to plead her case in front of a judge. As of this time, there is no update on her situation. There are also no current updates as to her 1 year old son and whether he has been placed in protective custody or will be returned to his mother when, or if, she is released from jail.
In a situation where a violent history is prevalent via court records, do you feel the mother, in this case Kimberly Aguilar, should be given the chance to redeem herself as a mother, or do you feel the 1-year-old child should be removed from her care? What about the others, should parenting classes be forced upon them to correct their behaviors?
