An Orangeburg mom was charged Thursday with cruelty to children after an unannounced visit to her home by a SC Department of Social Services social worker.
Kendra Breanna Rush, 26, was arrested a week after a DSS social worker noticed a cut on a 7-year-old’s face during a surprise visit to Rush’s home, Orangeburg County Sheriff Leroy Ravenell said in a news release. Rush allegedly admitted beating the boy.
An unknown number of children were taken into protective custody when Rush was arrested on Thursday, Ravenell said. A $250 personal recognizance bond was set by Orangeburg County Magistrate Judge Rob Clariday.
