The mother of a three-year-old Harlingen girl was charged with neglect Friday, just three days after her husband was charged for beating up her toddler.
Primera Police charged 29-year-old Sylvia Cortinas with child neglect and endangerment for failing to protect her daughter from her abusive stepfather.
Cortinas husband, Adolfo Garza Jr., was charged for severely beating her three-year-old daughter on Tuesday.
"During our investigation, we learned the mom knew and believed the actor, Adolfo Garza, had the tendency to become violent toward the child and yet she didn't do anything to prevent him from being alone with the child, Primera Police Chief Manuel Trevino.
In knowing that, Trevino says Cortinas left the three-year-old girl with Garza.
When she returned, the child had cuts on her face and her hair was pulled out.
Cortinas did rush her to the hospital, but police say the mother should have known better than to leave her alone with Garza.
"Its hard to believe that mom, who knew of the potential danger, did not step up and say, we need to stop this relationship because its endangering my kid. Its hard to believe that you see your child in danger but you don't do anything to defend her, Trevino said.
Luckily, Trevino says the girl will recover and won't suffer from any long term health effects.

Ah. The illegals and invaders traffic gift keeps on giving. If we pay for their kids, they should not have custodies over them in the first place.
It is always the paramour or the step dad
I counsel my clients that unless you are the child’s blood father or mother, you have no right to lay a hand on a child. And if a paramour or step parent lays a hand o a child who is not biologically theirs, the biological parent needs to leave with the child and not return. I am emphatic about it. The child comes first and these selfish little bastards can’t handle that, but the truth is the child comes first. If the paramour or the step parent can’t handle that, kick them out.
When will these idiot women learn that these selfish bastards they take up with are actually jealous of the children and wish to harm them?
This scenario takes place time and time again.
Too often the most dangerous person in a kid’s life is mommy’s new boyfriend or husband.
I’m sick of people like you lumping all step parents into one bunch. The majority of us have done a damn good job stepping in and becoming good fathers. When my wife and I got married my 2 oldest boys who are my step children were 4 and 2 years old. From day one I have treated them as if they were my flesh and blood. My wife left her abusive 1st husband because he was not only abusive to her, but to her 2 young boys also. My oldest are now 29 and 27, they know who their sperm donor is and want no part of him. In their eyes I am DAD!!
You are a great tribute to humanity and I bet you didn’t demand your wife put you first like these assholes do. Believe me, you are by far the exception and not the rule. Most of them are selfish and immature.
The kids have always come first in our family. That is how it should be. It wasn’t always easy, but it was worth it.
We need to bring caning as a legitimate punishment for child abuse.
“During our investigation, we learned the mom knew and believed the actor, Adolfo Garza,”
Actor, what part was he acting, being a Man? A real man does not beat a child, he protects them! I hope he get’s a long prison term with a short prison life at the hands of his new roomies. And spare me the replies about my not having a Christian attitude, “men” like this deserve nothing more than a swift departure to the judgement of God!
Deportation, snort! She’ll be granted amnesty and given an obamaphone for troubling her.
You can’t fix stupid. I know an obama loving couple who did nothing when their daughter’s fiance beat her... again. I hear the parents recently moved in with them so now he has two more bodies to beat on.
When will holder be sent to the rescue by mac daddy?
You would think with the benefits of Big Daddy Government these baby momma’s wouldn’t have to take home and put up with these abusive men. Of all the things welfare was supposed to do...
But no... nothing about the welfare system has turned out well. Maybe these women have some psychological need to find themselves a bad boy. Who knows.
sometimes the same hand.
The good ones never make headlines
It does, and with stepmothers as well.
Oh absolutely, the evil step mother is real so brutally real
It’s unfortunate, but true.
