Calvetta Williams, the executive director of the group "Mothers Against Violence" in Des Moines" is out on bail.
In a hearing Thursday morning, Judge Carol Coppola issued a no-contact order which states that Williams cannot have contact with the victim or children under 18 without supervision.
She's charged with child endangerment causing injury. Williams runs an in-home day care. A parent of a child in Williams care complained that her child came home with bruises on the face which indicated the child had been slapped.
Williams was released on $5,000 bond, which was posted through the Polk County Pre-Trial Release program.
Online court records show that Calvetta Williams also is scheduled to stand trial August 31st in a separate misdemeanor harrassment case from May.
