A judge has sentenced a North Texas woman to six years in prison for neglecting her disabled adult daughter and keeping her in a large crib in filthy conditions.
The Wichita Falls Times Record News reports that a district court judge on Monday sentenced Robin Payne. The Wichita Falls woman was accused of leaving her daughter in a feces-smeared crib while cashing the young woman's Social Security checks.
Payne, who pleaded guilty last month to exploitation of a person with a disability, had faced up to 10 years in prison.
Prosecutor John Gillespie has said Payne's daughter was 25 when deputies found her in 2013. He has said the daughter has been placed under the authority of Texas Adult Protective Services and now lives in a residential facility.
