Keresa Wilford pleaded guilty to neglect charges. In return, she will serve 18 months probation. However, if she successfully completes her probation, the charges may be reduced or dropped.
A little over a year ago, Wilford brought her 2-and-a-half year old daughter to Deaconess Hospital. At the time, the child only weighed 18 pounds. Doctors say she would have died within hours had she not received medical treatment.
