ImageA woman who worked as a local Deputy here in Santa Clarita has been charged with corporal injury to a child. Other felonies have also been charged to her.

 

According to the Los Angeles District Attorney’s office, the charges come after she allegedly mistreated an 8-year old in her family.

 

The Deputy, Deana Santino, was arrested and is due in court Wednesday morning, where she faces up to nine years in prison if convicted.
