Former Lynchburg daycare worker found guilty of child abuse

A former daycare worker in Lynchburg may be headed to prison, after being convicted of injuring a child.

Angela Tweedy entered an “Alford Plea” Friday afternoon on a charge of child abuse. Prosecutors say she broke the arm of a 21-month old boy she was supervising at the Five Star Academy on Fort Avenue last May.

An Alford Plea means Tweedy maintains her innocence, while acknowledging prosecutors have enough evidence to convict her. She faces a punishment of two to 10 years in prison when she’s formally sentenced July 12.
