HOLLIDAYSBURG, Pa. (AP) — A Pennsylvania woman who let her boyfriend watch her toddler son even though he was on probation for abusing the child before has been sentenced to jail.

The Altoona Mirror ( reports that 21-year-old Altoona resident Amber McBride pleaded guilty to child endangerment and was sentenced Monday.

Authorities say she let 23-year-old Altoona resident Christopher Kelly baby-sit her son in March 2014. The boy received new severe bruises.

McBride was charged after failing to report the new bruises to authorities. Blair County child welfare workers discovered the injuries 10 days later.

Kelly is now serving seven to 18 years in prison for hurting the boy. He claimed the boy had fallen from bed and struck a dresser.
