LAUREL, MS (WDAM) -

A Laurel woman accused of felonious battery to her 5-month-old child pleaded guilty in court Tuesday.

Suzzie Pearson appeared before Jones County Circuit Judge Dal Williamson Tuesday afternoon to enter her plea for the charge of felonious battery/abuse of a child.

The judge sentenced her to 10 years with eight years to serve in full-time custody and then two years post-release supervision and all court costs, plus a fine and fees totaling $1,852.

The state had video evidence from the incident which occurred April 18, 2015, showing Pearson throwing her then 5-month-old child across a room onto a couch then repeatedly pushing the child until it stopped crying.

Pearson read a statement to the judge begging for a favorable sentence in the case.

Judge Williamson noted that the 5-month old could have easily died that day.
