LETHBRIDGE- A southern Alberta mother who admitted she left her child in a freezing SUV while she went drinking has been given a conditional discharge by a judge.
The 25-year-old pleaded guilty last October of failing to provide the necessaries of life.
She cannot be named to protect the identity of the child.
Her sentence includes one year of probation during which she must abstain from alcohol and drugs and attend counselling.
If she follows the conditions she will be granted a discharge and have no criminal record.
The woman's lawyer, Darcy Shurtz, says she has shown significant remorse and has taken steps to rehabilitate herself.
