CHILTON, WI (WTAQ) - A woman in Calumet County guilty of child neglect has been sentenced to six months in jail.
Kristin Hidde was also put on probation for three years. A plea deal allowed a child abuse charge to be dropped.
The investigation into Hidde began after she brought her 3-year-old son to the hospital with severe swelling and bruising of his genitals.
Hidde told doctors the child's injuries happened when a toilet seat fell on him. Police say doctors found bruising on the boy's head and face, along with what appeared to be cigarette burns on his hand.
