Baby sitter gets 8 years for abusing boy

Posted by Paige Bresky - email

JACKSONVILLE, FL (WFLX) - A Jacksonville nanny -- caught on camera swatting, slapping and kicking an 11-month-old boy -- has been sentenced to eight years in prison.

A Duval County judge sentenced 53-year-old Jeannine Marie Campbell on Friday. She pleaded guilty to abuse charges last month. She could have received up to 15 years in prison.

The child's parents told authorities in March that they installed a hidden camera after noticing a black eye on one of their children. They called police after seeing the video.

Campbell reportedly told police she was mad at the parents and took it out on their child.
