6. Shaquila L. Byrd
The 35-year-old pleaded guilty to endangering the welfare of her five-year-old stepson. The child was reported by elementary school staff to be hungry, and covered with burns and bruises all over his body. Byrd later admitted to hitting the boy with a belt, as well as making him do push-ups as a form of punishment. She also later admitted to a judge that she would lock her stepson in his room from the time he come home from school until he left for school the next day, sometimes causing him to soil himself.
