Aguilar remained in the Wake County jail Sunday under a $20,000 bond. Her first court appearance is scheduled for Monday.

In a separate case, a 21-year-old Fuquay-Varina man is accused of seriously injuring his three-month-old child.

Tocarreo Meshawn Johnson, of 3220 Main St., was arrested and charged Saturday with felony intentional child abuse – serious bodily injury.

Johnson is accused of inflicting an injury that caused a frontal subdural hematoma on both sides of the infant's brain, according to an arrest warrant. 

Johnson remained in the Wake County jail Sunday under a $500,000 bond.

In another separate case, a 31-year-old Winston-Salem man is accused of driving under the influence while his two children were in the vehicle.

Antonio Perez-Santos, of 4732 Main St., was arrested and charged Sunday with two counts of misdemeanor child abuse, driving while impaired and failure to appear for driving while licence revoked and reckless driving.

    Punching a 1 year old child in the face is a misdemeanor?? See, that's just one of the many things wrong with our justice system.

    Anyone that abuses a toddler by punching them in the face, etc. should have the child taken from them and put into a loving home for life.

    Sounds like she has a habit of trying to hurt people when she's upset/angry. I wonder how big the people she assulted in '11 and '13 were. I know the kid couldn't have weighed more than twenty pounds or so. I wonder what she'd do if someone physically superior to her punched her in the face. Would she feel the fear her own son felt? What a waste of good air and space
