It's 10 years in prison for a woman who stole a car with two kids inside outside a grocery store in Springfield last March.
Springfield police say a man left his kids in the car with the keys in the ignition while he ran inside the store.
38-year-old Cynthia Brown from Springfield took off with the car, prompting an Amber Alert.
Greene County Prosecutor Dan Patterson says Brown let out a four-year-old boy in a residential neighborhood, and abandoned the car at some apartments with 14-month-old Harmony Blue still inside.
Family members found the car with the little girl.
Temperatures dropped to 29 degrees while the kids were missing.
But the children were not hurt.
