SCOTTSBLUFF, Nebraska — A Scottsbluff woman whose boyfriend was convicted of beating her daughter has been given two years of probation.
Scottsbluff television station KDUH (http://bit.ly/1LeVggV ) reports that 25-year-old Cassandra Miller was sentenced in Scotts Bluff County District Court on Friday.
Court records say Miller had pleaded no contest and was convicted of misdemeanor child abuse by neglect. Prosecutors had lowered the charge from a felony in exchange for Miller's plea.
Prosecutors say the 3-year-old girl was taken to a hospital in September by her grandmother. Doctors determined the girl had several injuries, including a lacerated liver and brain bleeding. Police say there was little food in the home, and the girl's clothes and bedding were stained with urine.
Miller's boyfriend, Cody Olbricht, has been sentenced to 18 to 30 years in prison.
