A teenage mother from Norristown has been given 6 to 23 months in Montgomery County Prison for hitting her one-year-old son hard enough to fracture his skull. She must also complete parenting and anger management classes. 19-year-old Brittany Cappio pleaded guilty in July to assault and endangering the welfare of a child. The grandmother found bruises on the child’s head after taking custody, and he seemed extremely hungry, so she had him examined at Children’s Hospital Of Philadelphia, where doctors found the fractures and also found that the baby boy was malnourished.
