WHAG NEWS - A Franklin County woman charged with abusing her four-year-old step-son has been convicted on all four charges against her. 

Michele Hunter was found guilty Monday to aggravated assault and endangering the welfare of children. 

Prosecutors said Hunter pushed William "Billy" Hunter Jr. in 2011, causing him to hit his head on the floor.
