Bath woman convicted of child abuse placed on interim probation
BATH, N.Y. (WENY) – A Bath woman convicted of child abuse has been placed on interim probation, according to the Steuben County Court clerk.
As WENY News reported, 25-year-old Amber Lapish-Rosado was convicted of second-degree assault and endangering the welfare of a child in October.
According to court documents, Lapish-Rosado held down her 5-year-old child and burned his forehead twice with a lit cigarette. She reportedly also admitted to daily drug use and claimed the burns on her son's head were pimples.
According to the court clerk's office, Lapish-Rosado will be back in court on November 20, 2020 once her interim probation is finished.
Under New York State law, if the court determined that a person is eligible for probation and the defendant agrees, the court “may adjourn the sentencing for up to one year...and place a defendant under interim probation supervision as a 'test' to see if the person might be successful on probation”.
