MESA, AZ - A Mesa woman accused of child abuse for allegedly leaving her daughter in a park for four hours while she had sex has been sentenced to 30 days in jail and four years of supervised probation.
Maricopa County court records show Commissioner Margaret Benny sentenced Laurie Lee Kelly on Tuesday.
In August, prosecutors had said Kelly left the 6-year-old girl in Evergreen Park with transients. She had bought beer for them and asked them to watch her daughter while she "went to make money."
When police arrived at the park, Kelly reportedly was found sitting in a grassy area with a man.
Prosecutors had said Kelly told police that she had sex with a couple of men while her daughter was being watched by strangers. She allegedly said she had "a manic sexual rage" that she couldn't control.
