BARABOO, Wis. (AP) — A mother whose young son died after she left him napping in a hot trailer has been sentenced to 10 months in the Sauk County Jail with work release privileges.
A judge Thursday also ordered 21-year-old Brandie Nelson to serve 10 years of probation for the death of 16-month-old Tanner. Nelson left her son in a hot trailer at a park in Prairie du Sac last July. When she checked on him three hours later, the child wasn’t breathing. She pleaded no contest to child neglect resulting in death in February.
WKOW-TV reports Judge James Everson ordered Nelson to take parenting classes, get counseling and stay sober as part of her probation.
