A Gillsville woman was arrested Wednesday in connection with a 5-month-old girl who, in the course of a month, fractured three leg bones and an arm bone, according to authorities.

Baby sitter Robin Carter Capulin, 38, “failed to seek medical attention for the baby and failed to notify the baby’s mother of the injuries,” according to the Hall County Sheriff’s Office.

The baby fractured a right femur, left and right tibia and left humerus between May 11 and June 11 at Capulin’s home on Rolling Ridge Drive in East Hall County, according to the Sheriff’s Office.

“My understanding is that she’s healing and doing fine,” Sheriff’s Office Lt. Scott Ware said.

Ware said the injury to the humerus, or upper arm, was “consistent with someone twisting the arm,” according to his conversation with investigators.

“The child was treated at Northeast Georgia (Medical Center) as well as Scottish Rite,” he said.
“During the examination, the fractures were discovered.”

Capulin is charged with second-degree cruelty to children and is in custody at the Hall County Jail.

According to Georgia code, that charge is used “when such person with criminal negligence causes a child under the age of 18 cruel or excessive physical or mental pain.”
