WACO (August 27, 2014) A McLennan County woman was sentenced Tuesday to probation after she pleaded guilty earlier to leaving a toddler in a hot car and to a forgery charge.
State District Judge Matt Johnson sentenced Kelly Dyan Coker, 31, to 5 years of deferred adjudication probation on an abandoning a child charge and the forgery charge, a district attorney's spokesman said Wednesday.
Johnson ordered the sentenced to be served concurrently.
Deferred adjudication means if Coker completes her probation successfully, she won't have a final conviction on her record.
Coker was arrested back in August 2013 after police say she left a toddler locked inside a hot car at the Hewitt Care Center.
By the time officers arrived, a bystander had removed the unresponsive child out of the vehicle.
Paramedics were able to revive the child, who recovered from the incident.
The child was not Coker’s, police said.
