After pleading guilty to harming her child, Erica Buckert will spend a year in jail.
On Monday, the young woman stood before Criminal Court Judge Shayne Sexton both confessing her guilt and learning her fate in the case.
After agreeing she was guilty of child neglect/endangerment and aggravated assault, Buckert was sentenced to the jail term. She will be given credit for the 30 days she spent in jail following her arrest.
Once the year’s sentence is finished, Buckert will be on probation for nine years, according to court documents.
