Nicole Fetters changed her plea to guilty Tuesday morning to charges of criminal mistreatment and child neglect.

The judge sentenced her to 55 days in the Lane County Jail.

She will also serve three years probation. If she violates her probation, Fetters will spend a year and three months in prison. She also can't have any contact with her son.
