Paterson woman arrested after allegedly striking 15-year-old child with electrical cord


A city woman has been arrested for allegedly striking a child with an electrical cord, according to the Passaic County Prosecutor’s Office.

Julissa Rosario, 33-year-old, has been charged with second-degree aggravated assault, third-degree aggravated assault, two counts of second-degree endangering the welfare of a child, third-degree possession of a weapon for an unlawful purpose, and fourth-degree unlawful possession of a weapon.

Rosario was arrested on Monday.

Authorities said on March 23, police were alerted to report of a 15-year-old child being struck with an electrical cord. Detectives interviewed the victim and other witnesses before filing charges against Rosario.

Rosario was released after she was processed. She could face decades in prison if convicted on the charges.

    not enough info in this article.Is this the mother?she should not have used an extention cord.However,if this is the mother,a normal, good old fashioned whooping might be in order,depending on daughter's behavior.The government needs to mind their business if it's non abusive discipline.Look at older people behavior,who got spankings regularly,and compare to 90% of today's errant,dirty,disdespectful,criminal "youth" who dont get spankings.There's your answer to what worked and what doesn't.
