Juneau - A 17-year-old girl has been charged with child abuse after fighting with an older student at their high school in Wisconsin.

A criminal complaint filed in Dodge County says Brandi Jo Winkelman struck a girl nearly 10 months older during a confrontation in a hallway at Watertown High School in October. The girl allegedly hit by Winkelman said follow-up exams showed she had some loose teeth and a slight concussion.

Winkelman is facing a felony charge of child abuse by intentionally causing bodily harm, a felony, and misdemeanor disorderly conduct.

The Beaver Dam Daily Citizen reported that a conviction carries a maximum six years and 90 days incarceration and $11,000 in fines.

Winkelman's attorney did not immediately return a call seeking comment.
