According to a news release from Summit County Attorney’s Office, Anderson became suspected of child abuse last February when doctors at Primary Children’s Medical Center discovered “metaphyseal lesions in the tibular bones of both legs of an infant that Anderson cared for at night.”
Metaphyseal lesions are breaks at the growth plate of the bone and are highly indicative in small children of child abuse. The child’s parents also reported that the child's twin sister had some unusual bruising on her face and arm.
In June 2012 Anderson was arrested and charged with four counts of child abuse. Anderson entered a please agreement with the prosecution in April. She pled guilty to two counts of child abuse. The prosecution also agreed to drop the other two counts.
Anderson is not to have unsupervised contact with children under 14 years old.
