HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) - A Connecticut mother who authorities say did nothing to prevent her boyfriend from seriously injuring their 10-week-old baby has been sentenced to prison.

Nicole Rousseau, of Enfield, pleaded guilty Tuesday to risk of injury to a minor. She was sentenced to one year behind bars.

Police charged the 34-year-old Rousseau in October after the baby was found to have injuries including a broken left arm, broken ribs and a wound that caused blood clotting around the brain.

Prosecutors say the full extent of the child’s injuries won’t be known until he’s 3 to 5 years old.

The child’s father, 39-year-old Michael Jiles, of Springfield, Massachusetts, pleaded guilty last week to risk of injury to a minor. He’s scheduled to be sentenced July 21.
