A 19-year-old mom is behind bars after police say she admitted to burning her 13-month-old son’s genitals with a flat iron, according to the arrest affidavit.

On April 26, police arrived at the Tahlequah City Hospital in Oklahoma, where a baby boy was being treated for several broken bones and severe burns to his genital area. Police say that when they arrived at the hospital, the baby appeared to be “glassy eyed” and “withdrawn.”

Authorities say Jodi Rock fabricated several different stories to explain her son’s injuries, initially pointing blame at her aunt, uncle and boyfriend.

According to the arrest affidavit, the mother then confessed to “burning [the baby] with a flat iron hair straighter… she then said she took and closed the iron [on the baby’s] private parts.” Rock then told police that the burned area “raised in a white blister which fell off,” according to the arrest affidavit.

The arrest affidavit states that the mother said either she or her boyfriend could have hurt the baby’s arms as they “both play rough with him…pulling him up by the arms and throwing him up in the air and on the bed.”

DHS immediately took custody of the baby boy while he was being treated at the hospital for his injuries.

HLN reached out to the attorney for Jodi Rock, but calls were not immediately returned.

She is currently being held on a $200,000 bond at the Cherokee County Detention Center on charges of felony injury to a child.

TAHLEQUAH, Oklahoma - A Tahlequah mother set to stand trial for next week for burning her 15-month-old son's genitals with a hair-straightening iron has pleaded guilty.
Jodi Rock, 20, was set to go on trial on May 20, 2013 on a charge of enabling child abuse by injury.

She was arrested in April of 2012 after bringing her son to Tahlequah City Hospital. The emergency room staff noticed the burns, as well as what appeared to be a seriously injured shoulder, and notified authorities.

According to court records, Rock pleaded guilty on May 14, 2013.

The judge sentenced her to 20 years in prison, with three years suspended.

Her son was put into DHS custody.

According to investigators, she admitted to the act, but never explained to them why she did it.

If she's already plead guilty and the judge sentenced her, why is there a trial?

I took the above to mean past tense.
