(LAFAYETTE) - A 29-year-old Lafayette mother may go to jail for three years for failing to report welts and serious burns her husband inflicted on her 6-year-old daughter.

Sherita Hill plead guilty, Friday, to felony neglect of a dependent. She's due for sentencing next month.

The prosecutor's office says there's a chance Hill can petition the court to reduce the felony to a misdemeanor.

Hill's husband, 33-year-old John Tate was sentenced to 13 years in prison back in February.
