Whitney White was charged on Monday with injury to a child.
The 27-year-old was initially being investigated after her now six-year-old son was seen with bruises on his face, welts on his body and a cut on his arm.

Court documents indicate White said she became frustrated with her son because he refused to study his school work.
She reportedly told investigators that the smack to the face came after he told her ‘no’, which White said was a ‘sign of disrespect’.
‘I was five years old when the defendant tased me on my arm because I got in trouble at school. From zero to 10, it hurt 10,’ the child said, according to court documents.
