An Apple Valley, Minn. mother is accused of beating her 13-year-old daughter with an extension cord and shoe after she opened a social networking account without permission.
Valerie Moore, 34, is charged with malicious punishment of a child for the July 25 incident.
According to the charges, Moore confronted her daughter that evening about opening the social networking account. Moore then proceeded to whip the girl multiple times with an extension cord, causing her legs to bleed.
Moore left the room and returned with a flip flop, beating her daughter on the face and arms with the shoe. When Moore left the room, the girl changed clothes and escaped out of the window, using tied-together bed sheets.
Valerie Moore admitted to beating her daughter with the extension cord and flip flop. She faces up to a year in jail, if convicted.
