A Sheboygan woman is in court today to face charges related to the abuse of her three children. One of the children reported the abuse to her principal saying she was tired of “getting whooped.” The child went on the tell authorities that one night while her mother, 27 year old Shiquita Perry was away, the 12 year old went to a nearby restaurant to get food for the children. When Perry found out, she started beating all three children, including a 5 year old and 4 year old with a rod. The beatings reportedly happened on multiple occasions as well, while Perry claims the only punishment she dealt out was a spanking. Perry is facing 4 felony charges of child abuse and 3 years in prison on each charge if she’s found guilty.
