ST. PAUL, Minn. – St. Paul police say they arrested a 27-year-old mother on Wednesday after she punched her 8-year-old daughter in a classroom.

Officials have charged Socorro Eaton, of South St. Paul, with one count of malicious punishment of a child.

According to police, Eaton punched her 8-year-old daughter in front of a teacher while inside a classroom at Bruce Vento Elementary School.

The criminal complaint states that the incident happened on Tuesday after Eaton spoke with her daughter’s teacher, Anna Mary Carlson, while dropping the girl off at school late.

The girl had a bag of art supplies she thought she needed for the day, and Eaton asked Carlson whether the supplies were needed since they had been bringing the supplies to and from school. When Carlson said no because, Eaton became angry and began to scream and curse at her daughter, the complaint said.

The complaint states that Eaton called the girl a “liar” and grabbed her by the right shoulder with her left hand before punching the girl with a closed fist two to three times in the face and chest.

Police said the teacher and the entire class of students witnessed the attack.

The complaint said that after she was hit, the girl began to cry and ran into the hallway, but she was followed by her mother who screamed after her, “get your a– back in the room or I will beat you in front of the class.”

The girl returned to the classroom crying and her mother left immediately, the complaint said.

Police responded to the child abuse call at the school, located at 409 Case Avenue, and met with the school nurse and the girl, who told police she was hit by her mother after she was dropped off at school.

When police asked the girl about the art supplies, she said she thought she needed the bag of items for a school project.

Investigators said the girl also told them that Eaton aften gets mad at her and beats her, and she recounted a June 13 incident whree she was whipped with a gold-colored belt because she was afraid to sleep in the dark and came out of her room.

Officers said they found a scratch on the girl’s nose and right shoulder, as well as multiple long, raised welts on her back.

Police arrested Eaton when she returned to the school to pick up her daughter. When asked about what happened in the morning, Eaton told the police investigator, “She lied and I beat her a–.” When asked to clarify, Eaton admitted that she hit the girl in the face.

Police said Eaton also admitted to whipping her daughter with a belt because she was supposed to be cleaning her room but did not.

Police said that Eaton told them she did not understand why she was being arrested because she had previously beaten her daughter and had not been arrested. While being booked into the Ramsey County Jail, jail staff reported that Eaton told them she would beat her daughter again for getting her arrested.

Malicious punishment of a child is a gross misdemeanor charge that carries a maximum sentence of one year in jail, a $3,000 fine or both.

  1. I could never imagine doing that to a child. People like this are sick and should never get there babies back.

  2. It aint going to lick itself on November 11th, 2011
  3. this is not ‘beating’. It’s torture. She’s not even conscious of the harm she’s doing, both physical and psychological to her child. She shouldn’t be allowed to even go out in public without serious psychological treatment.

  9. B1tch this isn’t a first license photo… it’s a mug shot for beating your innocent child. I hope someone wipes that smile off your face.

  11. Malicious punishment of a child is a gross misdemeanor charge that carries a maximum sentence of one year in jail, a $3,000 fine or both. Is this a joke? That’s it? She admitted the crimeS and even her future attacks and yet..she gets peanut jail. Put girl in the witness protection program far away from this lunatic.

  12. Lola on November 12th, 2011
  13. She obvious enjoys being her daughter. Psycho should be locked up in a loony bin and never let out.

  14. Jami on November 12th, 2011
  15. her Facebook page is up . The idiot even lists her phone number in her comments. (651)230-8001

  16. Kim on November 12th, 2011
  17. I’m one of spanking or giving a few swats to the bum as punishment to an unruly child but whipping with a belt and punching a child in the face? That’s too far. The woman (she doesn’t deserve to be call mother) sounds mentally disturbed and doesn’t need to be taking care of children.

    I doubt child services will hand the kid back to the women. She’ll probably go into foster care.

  18. LadyS on November 12th, 2011
  19. Thanks a LOT Kim!!
    I just went to her FB page… I think my IQ just dropped 10 points and I now feel like I need a shower!

  20. jeffm209 on November 13th, 2011
  21. I read the actual news article from the station, it was posted in June… Just went on her FB page and her last post was on sept8, so that means the psycho got out of jail! I cant believe this government system! That piece of garbage will get hers in Hell just wish I could be there to contribute to the pain
    Also I read that she was taking school classes Hopefully its english and grammar because clearly she needs improvement!

  22. kandice on November 13th, 2011
  23. how that f**k could she act so proud of this, sick dog

  24. Amy on November 13th, 2011
  25. i believe she should have received 2 counts of malicious punishment of a child, considering she OPENLY ADMITS to whipping her daughter with a belt, not to mention any other incidents that have happened. either way, social services wont let her get her kid back. anyone know a good place to get her tubes tied?

  26. rederic on November 13th, 2011
  27. Wow,some people just amaze me. She just doesn’t care about anyone but her sorry ass self.I feel sorry for that child.

  28. wicked on November 13th, 2011
  29. she just doesnt see that theres something wrong with punching her kid in the face hope they never give the girl back she is clearly mentally ill or maybe this was how she was raised either way still very wroung

  30. gloria cruz on November 13th, 2011
  31. She’s the reason the “n” word exists. Sick pos should be raped to death.

  32. mrwhyte on November 13th, 2011
  33. someone needs to beat the crap out of her in jail….let her see how it feels. what a sorry excuse for a human..

  34. straderr!! on November 13th, 2011
  35. what is bad is because she doesn’t give a crap I guarantee she will get that child back.

  36. Val on November 13th, 2011
  37. You’re right Val. Unfortunately you’re right. This story is from mid June of this year. From reading the comments and picture dates on her Facebook page since then, it looks as though she has her daughter (and the other three children she popped out)still in her so called “care”. You can see lots of scars on on the arms of her daughter in her daughters school photo.Scars and ouchies are normal in children. Things will happen, but no where near the amount you can see on this poor child’s body. If that many are seen, one can only wonder how many and to what extent is unseen.

  38. Kim on November 13th, 2011
  39. This goes far beyond appropriate punishment. Beating a child for an innocent mistake is never acceptable.
    This so-called “mother” is one of the best arguments for testing people before they are allowed to breed.

  40. lordofthegadflies on November 13th, 2011
  41. she said that she was gonna beat her kid again for having her arrested… that’s a threat, right?
    isn’t that enough to put the kid in a better home??

  42. bodhi on November 13th, 2011
  43. This skank needs her ass beat repeatedly and have that poor taken away!

  44. dirtydog57 on November 14th, 2011
  45. I agree LadyS, I will spank for say running into the street, especially when we have gone over the dangers of that repeatedly. But punching your child in the face because she made a mistake? Or beating her with a belt because she is afraid of the dark? This woman is psycho. She is completely detached from her child and what she is doing.

  46. SoCali on November 14th, 2011
  47. Why, WHY did they let this one fall through the cracks? That child should be given to a family that won’t beat her for minor stuff. Why CPS hasn’t been called already, I don’t know.

  48. Lobster Pot Girl on November 17th, 2011
  49. only one year, thats not punishment in my eyes.

  50. :( on November 21st, 2011
  51. Take that baby away from her for good! Jesus!

  52. Angela on November 21st, 2011
  53. I hope that she burns in hell on the hottest flame. How can you beat your child for assuming that art supplies are needed when in fact, it may have been two days later? How the hell can you beat your child and promise to beat them again and get away with it? She has learned the system, sad to say.

  54. taterhead on November 23rd, 2011
  55. On her fb page it says one of her favorite quotes is “What comes around, goes around”…..really? How ironic. Hopefully yours will be “coming around” soon. Maybe somebody will punch HER in the face.

  56. Melissa on December 1st, 2011
  57. A year? Seriously? One can get three times that for driving a car while friends shoot at people with bee bee guns. Once. This lady should get at least 15 years, if not longer.

  58. MC on December 11th, 2011
  59. Physical punishment is almost invariably the action of an unintelligent parent with poor impulse control. Folks can rationalize and say “I believe in a timely swat when necessary,” but what they’re really doing is justifying taking out their anger on their children. I am routinely told by teachers, relatives, etc., that my bouys are among the most polite and agreeable kids they’ve ever met, and I’ve never raised a hand to them. I’ve never had to dos o, since I’m the grown-up and smart enough to teach without physical assault. Must suck to be too stupid for that.

    Corporal punishment = Dumb, lazy parents who don’t have the patience or persistence to actually teach their children. It is both good and disturbing to be so superior to so many.

  60. AlfaCowboy on December 14th, 2011
  61. Can I point out that one of her pictures shows that she has twins. Where is the other child?

  62. Paige on December 16th, 2011
  63. Oh and Another older child. So that makes two children that we do not know where they are. And she posted a pic of the little girl in November, so apparently she got custody back? WTF is this world coming to??

  64. Paige on December 16th, 2011
  65. I really, really hope the FB page isn’t the same woman. She should never have been able to see day light ever after doing something like that to any child. I can’t believe someone would be allowed around kids after abusing them. I would send and angry letter to her but I’m sure she would just write back with something trashy then post something about how “ha8s r her motiv8rs” or something just as stupid….I wish it was legal to severely harm people like her.

  66. Ashley on December 26th, 2011
  67. Burn in hell bitch and die slowly and painfully

  68. kaisha on December 27th, 2011
  69. I love this quote from her FB page: “What gose around come around.” (Her spelling, not mine)

    You can’t tell me that her friends on FB haven’t heard of her crime. If one of my friends did something like this, they would never hear from me again. Well, I’d give them my opinion on what a piece of shit they are first.
