PASCAGOULA, Miss. (AP) - A Pascagoula woman has been sentenced to 25 years in prison for physically assaulting her 3-month-old daughter, resulting in critical injuries to the infant.

Erica Folmar pleaded guilty Friday in Jackson County Circuit Court to three counts of felony child abuse from incidents involving her infant daughter from July 19 through Nov. 19, 2013.

Circuit Judge Dale Harkey sentenced her to 25 years for each count. The sentences will run concurrently.

Folmar was arrested in November after authorities say the 3-month-old child was brought to Singing River Hospital in critical condition with injuries, including multiple skull fractures.
