No Jail Time for "Hot Sauce" Mom

Jessica Beagley, a 36 year-old Alaskan mom convicted last week of a single count of misdemeanor child abuse was given a suspended sentence of 180 days on Monday and fined $2,500.

The case against Beagley was initiated last November after she was shown on "Dr. Phil" pouring hot sauce into the mouth of her 7-year-old adopted Russian-born son and making him stand in a cold shower.
