A west suburban woman has been convicted of abusing a 14-month-old boy while she was babysitting.

Guadalupe E. Dominguez, 42, of the 1600 block of North East Drive in Aurora, was convicted Monday by Judge Clint Hull of one felony count of aggravated battery to a child, and one misdemeanor count of battery, according to the Kane County state’s attorney’s office.

The 14-month-old boy was left with Dominguez on Oct. 2, 2013 while his mother was at work, according to a statement from prosecutors.

When the child was returned that night, his mother noticed bruising and swelling on his body and face. She took him to the hospital, and an emergency room physician suspected abuse and contacted DCFS.

The investigation found that Dominguez knowingly inflicted the child’s injury, according to prosecutors.

Dominguez, who faces 3-7 years in prison when she is sentenced Sept. 3, remains free on a $1,000 bond, according to prosecutors. She also must register with the Illinois’ Murderer and Violent Offender Against Youth Registration Act.
