Car Wash Mother Gets One Year Probation

Niurka Ramirez, the Florida woman infamous for blasting her two-year-old with a car wash water hose, pleaded no contest to misdemeanor battery after charges of felony child abuse and negligence had been dropped. She was sentenced to one year probation and anger management and parenting classes. Outside the courtroom, the mother said she grew frustrated with her daughter who was throwing a tantrum and sprayed her to calm her down. She called the incident a mistake, just after saying she had done nothing wrong. Do you think the judge's ruling was fitting for the mother's actions with the high pressured hose?
