Kristen LaBrie, the Massachusetts mom who withheld cancer medications from her autistic son, was sentenced to 8 to 10 years in prison. She was found guilty on all four counts, including attempted murder.
Her son, Jeremy Fraser, died in 2009 at the age of 9. Doctors said he had a good chance to live, but LaBrie couldn't bear to see the medication's side effects.
"Kristen LaBrie wept and expressed remorse before a judge pronounced her punishment Friday in Lawrence Superior Court," says the AP. "She said she misses her son every day."
"Her lawyer argued she was simply overwhelmed by caring for her son and asked for one year in jail plus probation," says the AP.
