ELIZABETHTON — Criminal Court Judge Robert Cupp denied requests for probation for two Carter County women who had been accused of child abuse and ordered them to serve 4-year sentences. Tina Woods, 44, and Toinette Worthington, 38, had each been originally charged with two counts of aggravated child abuse in December 2007, when investigators of the Carter County Sheriff’s Department found a boy under age 8 at their Lovers Lane residence who had been taped to a potty chair. The boy was said to be a bed wetter. Investigators said the boy had been taped to the chair on other occasions and had his eyes taped shut as well.
