Elizabeth Escalona’s Mugshot

Dallas police said Elizabeth Escalona beat her daughter into a coma after frustration with potty training problems, The Associated Press reported.

“I have no comment and only God can judge me. That’s all I gotta say,” Escalona said Thursdayoutside court.

The Texas Department of Family and Protective Services says that the daughter arrived at the hospital in critical condition, sustaining bruising and blunt force trauma. However, she has made a fast recovery and has no lasting medical issues.

All of Escalona’s children were immediately taken into state custody after the incident took place in September 2011, according to the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services. The children are currently still in Child Protective Services’ legal custody, but have been placed with a relative.

According to CPS, Escalona had been previously investigated for allegations of abuse and neglect of her older children.

On Sept. 10, Escalona, facing possible life in prison, but also eligible for deferred adjudication, will be sentenced by state District Judge Larry Mitchell, The Dallas Morning News reported. If Escalona receives deferred adjudication, she will not have a criminal conviction.

Both Escalona’s defense attorney and the Dallas District Attorney’s Office declined to comment because the case is still pending.
