Lincoln Mom Sentenced for Not Protecting Her Baby
CREATED Aug. 9, 2013
LINCOLN - A 25-year-old Lincoln mother who didn't protect her toddler daughter from her boyfriend has been given 100 days in jail.
Online court records say Jessica Moton was sentenced on Thursday.
Moton had pleaded no contest to attempted negligent child abuse after prosecutors lowered the charge.
Authorities say Moton did nothing to stop her boyfriend from breaking her 14-month-old daughters' wrists and burning the little girl with cigarettes.
Authorities also say Moton lied to police to protect the man.
The boyfriend, 24-year-old LaDaryl Lathan, in February was sentenced to two to four years for child abuse.
