To spank or not to spank? At least one judge says don't even go there.

No, Rosalina Gonzales wasn't put behind bars for spanking her toddler, but prosecutors and a judge in Corpus Christie, Texas, let it be known that whacking a kid on the rear will land parents in hot water -- and possibly prison.

KZTV, the local CBS affiliate, reports Gonzales was arrested last year for Injury to a Child after her then 2-year-old's grandma took the girl to the hospital after spotting red marks on her behind.
