No prison time for Syracuse woman who broke a child’s arm

News

A Syracuse woman who broke a 4-year-old’s arm and caused a head injury when she threw the child into a car seat will not go to prison.

Catalina Balitz faced up to two years in prison when she pleaded guilty in April.

On Tuesday, she was sentenced to four years probation.

The child survived the incident.

During her guilty plea, her attorney said Balitz took programs to become a better parent, including parenting classes.
