Mother sentenced to probation for keeping kids in kennel
The Nebraska mother of two boys police found locked in a dog kennel will serve two years of probation after pleading no contest to felony child abuse.
23-year-old Ashly Clark changed her plea Monday in Lincoln County District Court.
Several other charges were dropped.
Prosecutors made deals with Clark and three other defendants in this case after a judge ruled that some of what they told investigators couldn't be used as evidence.
Police say they found Clark's two boys sleeping in a wired-shut kennel last October inside a filthy home.
Last week, 22-year-old Lacy Beyer and 26-year-old Bryson Eyten pleaded no contest to two misdemeanor charges and received one year of probation.
Similar charges are pending against 25-year-old Samantha Eyten, who is due in court on July 12.
