Connecticut Foster Mother Pleads Guilty of Spanking 4-year old with Wooden Spoon


Abused Foster Children

Foster parent, Jami M. Littlefield pleaded guilty on Monday in Superior Court in Norwich, Connecticut to spanking a 4-year-old girl on the buttocks with a wooden spoon.

Littlefield was arrested after the child’s biological mother, Elisabeth Land noticed bruises on her daughter’s buttocks during a supervised visit on January 11.

The mother said the 4-year old girl was wearing baggy pants, and when the child bent over to pick up a toy, she saw what appeared to be a handprint on her lower back and a bruise on her buttocks.

The mother reported the injuries to a child advocate who was supervising the visit. The advocate took the little girl to Pequot Health Center where medical staff determined the girl had contusions on her buttocks.

Jami M. Littlefield told the police in a statement that she was home sick from her job on January 7 and the foster child was “acting out throughout the evening” and had struck Littlefield’s granddaughter, who is also 4.

Littlefield went on to say that she pulled down the girl’s pants and “paddled her butt” three or four times with a wooden spoon that she had been using to stir soup after the girl told Littlefield she was going to kill her, called her a racial slur and spat at her several times.

The brother said he had heard the beating from his bedroom.

The child’s biological mother, Elisabeth Land and her husband had been having emotional and financial problems and voluntarily signed the girl and her older brother into foster care in August 2012 so they could work toward providing the children a better home life, reports The Day.

Littlefield was licensed as a foster mother in 2004, according to Gary Kleeblatt, communications director for the Department of Children and Families. They have revoked her license since the arrest.

Littlefield will be sentenced July 17 to 100 days in prison and two years of probation for third-degree assault.
