The operator of a South Bay day care center is facing possible prison time after being convicted of abusing children in her care.

Giti Karimpour is being held without bail after being convicted Friday on one charge of causing great bodily injury to a nine-month-old boy and another charge of conduct likely to cause injury on a 21-month-old.

The nine-month-old suffered a fracture femur while in the care of Karimpour last spring at her center in Cupertino called Giti's Family Day Care.

The 47-year-old Karimpour is due to be sentenced in February. She's facing a sentence ranging from probation to ten years in prison.
