Parents Plead No Contest to Child Abuse Charges

Parents of an injured two-month-old found have pleaded no contest to child abuse.

Daniel Sauceda and Brianna Castro of Bakersfield were arrested after a San Joaquin Community Hospital doctor told police in March that the girl’s thigh fractures weren’t self-inflicted.

Sauceda faces up to six years in prison when he’s sentenced next month. Castro was given time served.
