According to the report, the 3-day-old newborn “was found Nov. 27, 2015, by two women taking a walk along a riverside bike path in Compton. They heard the baby’s muffled cries and called Sheriff’s Department deputies, who pulled her from a hole in the ground, wrapped in what appeared to be a hospital blanket.”

Washington had hidden the fact she was pregnant, throughout her pregnancy, probably premeditatively. “On Wednesday, Washington admitted to an allegation that she committed great bodily injury on a child under six years old.”
