KANSAS CITY, Kan. -- The young mother accused of fracturing her 3-month-old son's ribs after shaking him and tossing him onto a bed, accepted a plea in court on Monday.
As part of the plea, charges against Abigail C. Millican were reduced to one count of domestic child abuse. In December 2012, Millican was charged with two felony counts of physical abuse.
Millican admitted to being angry and frustrated with the child, identified as “J.M.” in court documents.” She admitted “aggressively tossing J.M. onto the bed and cranking his arm up.”
A judge sentenced Millican to three years supervised probation and 40 hours of community service. In addition, the judge told her she will have to be evaluated and she must get a job.
