The woman was identified as 34-year-old Rosalie Contreras, who became mad at her daughter for misbehaving, so she drove her to a remote location and made her take off her clothes. She then made the girl get out of the vehicle and walk back to their home while she was naked and barefoot. Another car started driving toward them, which is when Contreras told the girl to get back in the vehicle. She smacked her child’s face and punched her on the back, then grabbing her breasts and twisting them.
Contreras was arrested and charged with child abuse. She claimed that she had been trying to discipline the girl and that nobody would let her spank her, so she took her to the private location.
