Rothschild babysitter takes plea deal


A 19-year-old Rothschild babysitter captured on a nanny-cam has taken a plea deal.

Jennifer Cronin pleaded guilty to two counts of felony child abuse.

Cronin was charged in March after prosecutors say a hidden camera captured her hitting a four-month old baby.

As part of the plea deal, Marathon County prosecutors dismissed a third felony count.

The video of the incident has not been made public. On Tuesday prosecutors asked for the video to be sealed and the judge agreed.

Cronin is expected to be sentenced January 28. Cronin's attorney declined to comment.
