SAPULPA, Okla. (AP) — A Sapulpa woman has been sentenced to 15 years in prison after she was accused of dumping her newborn son in a trash bin nearly three years ago. Kristina Blackburn pleaded no contest to felony child abuse. The Sapulpa Herald reports (http://is.gd/eBcsL6 ) that Blackburn was also sentenced to 25 years of probation and was ordered to have no contact with children. Prosecutors accused Blackburn of placing the baby in a duffel bag, then dumping him in a trash bin outside of a Disabled American Veterans post. The DAV's director discovered the baby, who survived.
