Ellie pleaded guilty to aggravated assault, family violence, child cruelty and battery after Douglas County prosecutors said she severely beat her son last November, the report said.
Elie was spotted hitting her son with a switch on the side of the road, according to the Facebook page.
Assistant District Attorney Rachel Ackley told the court she kicked and beat him with a tree limb because he woke up crying, according to WSB. "That's it. A 3-year-old little boy woke up and he cried. And for that he received one of the worst beatings I've ever seen," Ackley reportedly said.
