BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) Baton Rouge police have arrested a 28-year-old woman accused of beating her three children, ages 2, 4 and 5, with an extension cord on their back, hip, face, chest and arm.

The Advocate reports the children told police their mother, Sherrie Ann Stevenson beat them on April 21 because the 4- and 5-year-old let the 2-year-old drink juice without permission.

Police booked Stevenson into Parish Prison on Wednesday on three counts of cruelty to juveniles.

It was unclear whether Stevenson has an attorney.
