SHEBOYGAN, WI (WHBL) - A Sheboygan woman will spend some time behind bars for beating her 6 and 8 year old boys last December. 30 year old Anna Reichard was sentenced recently in Sheboygan County Court to three years probation with the first 30 days to be spent in the county jail.
Reichard was charged after an acquaintance captured the beating on cellphone video and turned it over to police. It showed her 6 year old being hit numerous times with a belt for getting a bad report from school. A witness said the boy was struck “full force” at least 25 times. Authorities said the boy had six long, narrow bruises on his back when they examined him. Reichard told investigators she got carried away and didn’t mean to hit him that hard.
