Mother faces jail time for leaving baby in woods

PITTSBURGH (AP) -- A
western Pennsylvania woman who told police she was seeking a "fresh
start" when she abandoned her baby daughter in the woods last year will
serve jail time followed by more than seven years of probation, during
which she cannot contact the girl.

Defense attorney Patrick Thomassey says he thinks Monday's sentence
of 25-year-old Jennifer Cutruzzula, of Wall, was appropriate given her
significant mental issues.

Police say Cutruzzula dropped off the baby with only a bottle, with
temperatures in the mid-30s and a light rain falling on Feb. 27, 2013.

A neighbor who saw Cutruzzula leave the woods alone found the baby
crawling on a muddy hillside and alerted authorities.

Cutruzzula must serve up to 16 months incarceration, following by 7
1/2 years' probation. The first few months of her sentence will be in a
mental facility.
