Columbia Co. Daycare Worker Pleads Guilty to Child Abuse Charges

A former Columbia County daycare worker plead guilty Wednesday on a cruelty to children charge. Pamela Viscarra, 57, will get one year in prison as a result of her plea as well as four years on probation. Viscarra was charged in June 2019 after she was accused of slapping one child in the face, snatching another by his hair, and even pulling one child over the back of a couch. A second former daycare employee, Hannah Diamond, was also charged in this case. Her case is still pending.
