CLEVELAND (AP) - A 30-year-old Cleveland woman who abused her boyfriend’s 4-year-old son is headed to prison.

Cleveland.com reports (http://bit.ly/1TnG1qU ) that Crystal Anderson apologized as she was sentenced Tuesday to serve eight years in prison after pleading guilty to child endangerment charges.

Cleveland paramedics had rushed the boy to the hospital in January 2015 after Anderson called 911 saying he slipped in the bathtub at their apartment.

Prosecutors say doctors later found his injuries were too severe to have been caused by such a fall. The boy has undergone more than a dozen brain surgeries and is paralyzed on the left side of his body as a result of the abuse.

The boy’s father has been sentenced to 18 months in prison for leaving the boy with Anderson after agreeing not to.
