WAUSAU, Wis. (WSAU) -- A Rothschild woman convicted of abusing two children she was babysitting will be sentenced this week.

20-year-old Jennifer Cronin is set for sentencing Friday on two counts of intentionally causing harm to a child. Cronin was caught on a nanny cam abusing two young boys in March of 2013. The two victims were 4 months old and 2 years old at the time of the abuse. Footage from the tape shows Cronin repeatedly hitting the 4-month-old and pushing the 2-year-old to the ground.

Cronin is currently free on a signature bond. She faces a maximum of 3 years in prison on the most serious charges.
