It means there are 5 charges listed on the warrant. She may go to jail or prison if convicted but that depends on the facts, the charges, and her prior record (if any).

    No idea what a 5 means on a Texas warrant but injury to a child is a felony and the level depends on the age of the child and the seriousness of the injury as well as her criminal history.
