Charges Filed After Baby Hurt At Day Care

Sioux Falls, SD

A Sioux Falls day care provider faces charges after a child in her care was hospitalized.

Police arrested 59-year-old Karen Leraas on Monday. Lerass is charged with abuse or cruelty to a minor.

The arrest stems from an investigation that started when a four-month-old boy was sent to the hospital on August 7. Workers at the hospital felt the child's injuries were suspicious and called authorities.

The boy is still hospitalized with brain and eye injuries, but police say his condition has improved.
