ENGLEWOOD, Fla.- Sharon Swat, the 24-year-old mother accused of neglect in her son's 2013 drowning, took a plea deal today.
According to the State Attorney's Office, Swat pled to child neglect, and agreed to three years of probation, a psychological evaluation, a parenting class, and 50 hours of community service designated towards education and prevention of child drowning.
Swat will also have to pay $151 to the Child Advocacy Trust Fund.
Swat was arrested on December 14, 2013, after she left her two children, an 11-month-old son and a 4-year-old daughter, unattended in the bathtub on June 3, 2013.
The boy was found face down in the water, which was running over the side of the tub. Emergency workers began CPR on the infant and he was transported to Englewood Community Hospital where he was pronounced dead.
