Cortland Woman Arrested for Child Battery after Month-long Investigation

Posted by wlpo on January 9, 2016

A Cortland in-home daycare operator has been arrested for multiple felonies involving violence and a child in her care.

Katie Petrie was arrested just after 4 pm Friday for 4 counts of aggravated battery to a child following an investigation dating back to December. Cortland Police and Ambulance responded to a call about a child having a seizure last month. After the call the police asked DCFS and the DeKalb Sheriff’s office to look into the incident.

Petrie was arrested as a part of that investigation. She is currently being held on $500,000 bond at the DeKalb County Jail.

The DeKalb County Sheriff’s Office says the investigation is ongoing and there do not appear to be any other victims at this time.
