Judge Wijewickrama finds probable cause
The case involving a Dillsboro woman who allegedly assaulted her granddaughter earlier this month progressed to Superior Court after District Court Judge Roy Wijewickrama found probable cause for all charges last week.
Lisa Plank Hart, 45, of Cat Tail Drive, faces felony counts of child abuse with serious bodily injury, assault inflicting serious bodily injury, and negligent child abuse with serious bodily injury. Prosecutors were able to gather enough evidence last week to bind Hart to a Superior Court probable cause hearing on Oct. 26.
