SAN DIEGO — A woman previously convicted of child abuse, pleaded guilty Tuesday to burning seven of the child’s fingers on a stove.

Child Abuse GirlMaria Luisa Garcia, a 35-year-old mother of 10, was convicted in November of felony child abuse for whacking her 8-year-old daughter in the head with a broomstick, choking her and hitting her with a belt. However, jurors deadlocked on the charge stemming from the finger-burning.

Garcia, who pleaded guilty Tuesday to unlawful corporal punishment, faces up to six years in state prison. Sentencing is set for March 5.

Deputy District Attorney Matthew Dix said earlier that Garcia abused her daughter continuously from August 2012 until the finger-burning incident last Jan. 16.

The prosecutor said Garcia burned her daughter’s fingers because the girl wasn’t doing her chores.

    I feel for the kids but we need people to pay there fair share if they have this many kids! People need to man up and tell society to stop having 10 kids of you cannot parent this many.

    Illustrates once again the urgent need for more abortion, capital punishment, contraception, eugenics, euthanasia and sterilization! Maggots shouldn't be allowed to reproduce!

    If she's doing that there's no way she'll raise 10 healthy, well rounded kids. She should relinquish custody and do what's right, these kids deserve better.
