Woman Pleads After Putting Dog Collar on 12-Year-Old Child | Local news

A woman accused in 2019 of placing a dog collar on a 12-year-old girl and driving her into the house, suffocating the child, pleaded guilty in Cumberland County Criminal Court last week.

Her lawyer called for a judge to convict her at a hearing scheduled for October 1.

Dara Kinsey Smith, 36, pleaded guilty to the single count of aggravated assault. She faces three to six years in prison for the Class C felony as a Category 1 offender.

Any penalty she receives will be 30%, according to state law.

The plea is maintained until a judge determines how the sentence will be served. Options include full probation, time-to-serve fractional imprisonment, and supervised probation or serving time in jail.

Mitigating and enhancing factors will determine how and for how long the sentence will be served.

The case was investigated by Cumberland County Sheriff’s Deputy Chief Jerry Jackson, investigator David Bowman and ACC investigators Kelly Garrison and Abby King. The date of the offense indicated on the indictment is February 22, 2019 and the indictment was entered in August of the same year.

Deputy District Attorney Philip Hatch described in a statement of facts which indicated that the likelihood of conviction was high and that the evidence would show Smith placed the dog collar firmly on the child’s neck, causing injury .

The Tennessee Supreme Court’s ban on hearings and trials during the COVID-19 court system slowdown has delayed the case.
