A Fridley mother of four entered a guilty plea in Anoka County District Court Monday after forcing her 12-year-old daughter to run outside in a diaper, the Star Tribune reports.

According to the complaint, 38-year-old Stephanie Ann Broten and her boyfriend 34-year-old Darnell Alan Landrum shaved the girl's head and made her run up and down a city street wearing a diaper because she received an "F" on her report card.

Broton told police she was "simply disciplining her child by embarrassing her," the complaint states.

Other punishments included only feeding the children peanut butter and jelly sandwiches for a month and not allowing them to take showers, notes the Star Tribune.

The mother will learn her sentence in three weeks and could face up to year in jail, WCCO says.

The television station tried to catch up with Broton as she walked out of court Monday:
