Woman pleads guilty to beating a mother as her toddler son watched in crime caught on video

A New Jersey woman accused of beating a mother in front of her young child last year has pleaded guilty to aggravated assault charges.

Salem County prosecutor John Lenahan tell NJ.com (http://bit.ly/1DFu8AI ) that Latia Harris entered the guilty plea last week.

The 25-year-old Harris faces five to 10 years in prison when she's sentenced in June.

She turned herself in after a videotape surfaced in which authorities say she pummeled the mother of a toddler in the face and kicked her in the back.

Several people watched as the assailant threatened to attack the mother's 2-year-old son, who yelled and kicked her legs in a futile effort to stop the violence.

Authorities say the mother suffered impaired vision in her left eye and other injuries in the attack.
