Mother Avoids Jail for Not Seeking Medical Attention for Son
BATAVIA, Ohio (WKRC) -- A Clermont County woman will avoid jail time for child endangering, as long as she stays out of trouble.
A judge sentenced Victoria Gans to five years probation. However, if she violates her probation she'll have to serve two years in prison.
Gans admitted she did not immediately seek medical attention for her son after he was injured by a babysitter in the Batavia area.
After her sentence she told Local 12 "I'm kind of relieved I'm not going to prison because I can be with my son now. I can get with him quicker I can take care of him myself and it'll make me proud as a mom to have him in my life again".
14-month old, Noah, suffered a severe skull fracture with brain bleeding. The babysitter, Alexsis Sexton, already pleaded guilty to hurting Noah and another child. Sexton will be sentenced on October 29.
Noah is currently in the care of Gans' parents. She's allowed to visit him once a week.
