COLUMBIA -- A South Carolina state senator wants to require jail for anyone convicted of causing serious injury to children. Greenville Republican Sen. Mike Fair told The State newspaper his bill would require a mandatory prison sentence for child care providers who hurt children. Fair said he wants longer minimum sentences for convicted child care providers. Fair cited a Columbia case in which a home day care provider got no prison time after admitting to seriously harming a baby. Causing serious injury to a child is a felony that carries a maximum sentence of 20 years in prison, but there is no minimum sentence. Talisha Lavette Smith was given five years of probation after pleading guilty last month. Authorities say Smith slapped the 7-month-old girl so hard it caused bleeding in her brain.
