Baby burned and her mom is sentenced

A mother is taking the fall for serious and mysterious burns to a baby.

Cleveland Child Abuse Detectives arrested several people when it happened back in June, and had trouble getting straight answers.  But in the end, only the mother, Brianca Freeman, is going to prison.

Judge Nancy Russo just sentenced her to 15 months.  Freeman waited more than a day without taking the baby to a doctor. The child's grandmother finally saw the burns and called 9-1-1.

Investigators had been told the child burned herself with a hot iron left on the floor.
