DES MOINES – A local anti-violence activist is behind bars on a child endangerment charge.
46-year-old Calvetta Williams is the founder of the group Mothers Against Violence. Police say she was babysitting a child last month in her in-home day care. The parents of that young girl noticed she had several injuries to her face and arms.
Police say Williams turned herself in and was arrested early Wednesday morning, after a warrant for her arrest went out on Friday. Now, authorities – and neighbors – are trying to figure out what happened.
