Grand Traverse County Babysitter Pleads Guilty to Child Abuse

A babysitter in Grand Traverse County may spend time in prison after she pushed a four-year-old boy against a wall.

Jessica Robertson pleaded guilty to fourth-degree child abuse Tuesday.

The Grand Traverse County Sheriff’s Office says she was babysitting five kids back in August when she got upset with the boy for tossing her wallet out of a car window.

She then pushed him against a wall, leaving him with bruises all over his back and arms.

Robertson will be sentenced Nov. 17.
