Three women who allegedly whipped their children as a form of religious discipline each pleaded no contest Monday to one count of felony child abuse and were sentenced to five years' probation. The supervised probation, unusually long for women with no criminal records, is intended in part to protect the children, some of whom will be 18 by the time their mothers' probation ends, said the prosecutor, Deputy Dist. Atty. Fred Klink.

Children as young as 4 were whipped with telephone cords or belts until they screamed "Demon anger, be out of me!" as part of a small religious group's chastisements, said police, who have arrested the mothers of several of the children. Ten children, some bruised and scarred with welts, were picked up from across the Los Angeles area on the day after Christmas and placed with relatives or in protective care, said Los Angeles Police Officer Victor Williams.
