A former Gallatin County day care provider who admitted to breaking the leg of an infant she was watching has been given a three-year deferred sentence.  Erin Renee Cooper plead guilty Wednesday to criminal endangerment as part of a plea deal that dropped her initial charge of felony assault on a minor.

Cooper had admitted she “used too much pressure” while changing the six-month-old boy’s diaper in January 2015.  The boy’s mother says Cooper told her she heard a popping sound during the incident.  The baby was taken to a hospital, where doctors determined his right femur was fractured.
