Former foster care worker sentenced for hitting child

  • 1

GREAT FALLS — A former employee of an emergency foster care program in Great Falls has been given a deferred sentence after hitting a 7-year-old girl in her care in January 2019.

Kay Ann Clark was charged with trying to force-feed the girl at the Great Falls Receiving Home and then hitting her in the back of the head and whipping her face with a towel, prosecutors said.

Under the plea agreement that allowed for the deferred sentence, the charge can be dismissed if Clark meets the terms of her probation.

District Judge Greg Pinski said Clark can no longer work in child care in any capacity and must stay away from minors, including her grandchildren, until she completes an anger management course, ABC Fox Montana reported.
