RACINE, WI (WTAQ) - A former Racine child care worker has been convicted, after she allegedly stood by while three youngsters were attacking a two-year-old boy.  

24-year-old Krystina Woods has pleaded no contest to a felony count of failing to prevent harm to a child. She also agreed to testify against a co-defendant, 23-year-old Jakitta Hollins of Caledonia.

Prosecutors are recommending a year in jail plus probation for Woods, who will be sentenced August 28th.  

Woods and Hollins were both charged for an incident in April of last year at the Bundles of Blessings Kids' Care in Racine.

Authorities said the two women watched the attack on the young boy, then posted it on Facebook. Hollins is scheduled to go on trial June 24th.
