JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - If she follows the rules correctly, the mother of Cristian Fernandez won't spend any more time in prison.
A judge on Wednesday sentenced Biannela Susana to a ten year prison sentenced, minus the two years and four months time she'd already served.
But immediately afterwards, the judge then suspended the sentence and put Susana on probation.
She must now spend 90 days at the Hubbard House domestic violence shelter and then two years in a halfway house.
Susana pleaded guilty to aggravated manslaughter after her son Cristian Fernandez (then 12 years old) beat his 2 year-old half-brother to death in 2011.
Prosecutors say Susana waited nearly eight hours before calling for medical help for her younger son.
Before the sentencing, she faced up to 30 years in prison.
Susana must also have no contact with her biological children unless approved by a therapist.
