An Alabama mother was found guilty this week of aggravated child abuse against her own twin babies.

The Mobile County District Attorney’s Office said a Mobile County jury found Charity Harris guilty of three counts of aggravated child abuse and one count of first-degree assault of her twin children.

Over the course of the week-and-a-half trial, the state presented evidence proving the twins suffered from multiple skull fractures, brain bleeds and bone fractures throughout their bodies from the time they were 3 weeks old to 7 months old.

“What these babies were subjected to, at the hands of their mother, was horrifying,” said Keith Blackwood, Mobile County District Attorney. “Our office is committed to being a voice for the voiceless and protecting the most vulnerable among us.”

The state was represented by Assistant District Attorneys Jessica Catlin and Clayton Williams along with Trial Coordinator Stacia Rogers who worked tirelessly to ensure Charity Harris was held accountable for her horrendous actions.

Judge Brooks has set sentencing for October 31, 2023.
