SOUTH BRUNSWICK - A nurse practitioner pled guilty in court today after she was caught on surveillance video urinating in her employer's kitchen sink in front of the special-needs child she cared for.

Kassandra Fields-Ralph, whose story was first seen on News 12 New Jersey in November 2010, appeared before municipal court Judge Michael Dowgin on charges of theft and improper behavior.

Fields-Ralph was also seen stealing clothing and food in the video. Police say she confessed that she did those things because she didn't like the child's mother.

Matt and Miranda Christiano say they hired Fields-Ralph through an agency in February 2010. They say she was welcomed into their home and entrusted with the care of their son.

The judge sentenced Fields-Ralph to a year's probation, $1,500 in fines and fees, and 60 hours of community service.
