PHOENIX (AP) - A woman who crashed her car through a Phoenix airport’s security gate and drove onto a runway with her infant son in the vehicle has been sentenced to five years of probation.

Maricopa County Superior Court officials say 24-year-old Koko Nicole Anderson was sentenced Friday on one misdemeanor count of child abuse.

She reached a plea agreement in December in which she wouldn’t have to serve any jail term.

Besides probation, it called for her to attend parenting classes, undergo mental health treatment and monitoring plus pay unspecified restitution for the November 2012 security breach at Sky Harbor International Airport.

Anderson told authorities that she has bipolar disorder and wasn’t taking medication at the time because she was breast-feeding.

Sky Harbor officials say the incident caused $13,500 in damages.
