And people going over the speed limit.

The mother of the 15 year old reedsburg boy who died during a 40-day fast last september was sentenced to six years in prison.

Titilayno omosebi will serve three years in initial confinment and three years probation.

Jamie perez joins us live from the sauk county courthouse with details of this case.

Jamie?

Her attorney had asked the court to consider only giving her probation.

He said the cultural differences and her non-criminal intent were reasons he gave for her to not go to prison.

But the court argued that the death of a child could not go unpunished.

In an emotional statement in court, titilayo omosebi took responsibility for the death of her son from a fast the family was doing for 40 days last september.

Nats her reading?

She's soft spoken but she said this was a tragic event that's caused her a lot of trauma.

She said she made a terrible mistake and she loves her children, that her family belongs together and now they are nothing and what she did was wrong.

2:47:35 the court does not in any way doubt ms. omosebi's remorse.

The court in no way doubts the apology she's given here today.

I do believe it is true.

I do believe it is heartfelt."....(from 5) the fact that the defendant's older son died as a consequence of her behavior is as serious as it gets to the court."

Omosebi's attorney had asked the judge for probation only saying she did not have a criminal intent, was a victim herself as she also participated in the fast, and that cultural differences played a role.

3:08:35 omosebi's attorney "i'm grateful that the judge considered all the arguments.

I still believe she should not be going to prison.

I know it's an absolutely tragic case and the death of a child is so serious, but her remorse, the tragic circumstances that titilayo exhibited, i would have hoped that she got probation."

The judge said that prison time was needed for a case like this and had authorities not stepped in when they did, things could have been worse.

2:41:20 "in a somewhat ironic way, the death of the older brother, saved his younger brother's life.

And as pointed out here today, it most likely saved the defendant's life" omosebi's husband is also being charged.

He is going through the and as pointed out here today, it most likely saved the defendant's life" omosebi's husband is also being charged.
