Florida babysitter gets 40 years for death of boy left in her care


A Florida woman has been sentenced to 40 years in prison for the death of an 8-month-old baby left in her care.

The Associated Press reports that 22-year-old Adrianna Bradley was sentenced Friday. She was convicted in February of aggravated child abuse and manslaughter. She had faced up to 45 years in prison.

Authorities said Bradley had been babysitting Jaxon Betts for several months when she called his mother in September 2015 and said he wasn’t breathing.

Court records show that an autopsy determined Jaxon died of brain swelling after being violently shaken.
