LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) -

A 23-year-old Lufkin woman accepted a plea bargain deal of three years of probation Friday for hitting her son with a belt hard enough that it left welts and bruises on his back and left eye in April of 2014.

Shadestini Moore appeared in the 159th Judicial District Court for a plea hearing Friday. As part of the agreement, she pleaded guilty to a state-jail felony injury to a child charge.
According to the arrest affidavit, a Lufkin Police officer responded to a 911 call about a disturbance at a residence in the 1600 block of Keltys Drive. When he got there, he found two men involved in an argument.

Once the LPD officer separated the two men, he learned that a grandson of one of the men had been injured by being hit with a belt in the back and left eye.
 
The officer checked the boy out and found that that the child's left eye was bruised and swollen enough that it was almost closed. In addition, the LPD officer noticed "at least two" welts in the center of the boy's back.

When the LPD officer asked the boy what happened, he said he was bad at school and was punished by the mother. According to the affidavit, Moore arrived at the home a short time later. After she was asked what had happened, Moore said that she didn't mean to hurt the boy or hit him in the face. She said that she was trying to spank him for being bad at school, the affidavit stated.

The LPD officer then asked Moore where the belt was, and she said she was wearing it. After she took the belt off and placed it on the ground, it was placed into evidence.

Moore was arrested at the scene and transported to the Angelina County Jail.
