LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) - LUFKIN, Texas (KTRE) - A Lufkin woman has turned herself in to authorities on an allegation of her hitting her five-year-old son for getting in trouble at school.
Andrette Lachelle Session, 28, is charged with injury to a child.
According to an arrest affidavit, the child's grandmother found out about the abuse and reported it to Lufkin Police and Child Protective Services.
Det. David Cross interviewed Session, who admitted to striking her son in the right side of his face, because she was mad at him for getting in trouble at school.
A warrant was obtained for Session's arrest on Oct. 27 and she turned herself in to the Angelina County Jail on Wednesday.
Det. J.B. Smith said a warrant has also been obtained for Session's husband, Matthew Tyron Session, 30, of Lufkin, on a misdemeanor offense of false report to a police officer. Smith said Session lied to Cross about the incident and tried to prevent his wife from being arrested by saying that he injured the child.
