A Morristown woman accused of giving a child a cold bath, then leaving him outside in the cold weather, has pleaded guilty to child abuse charges.

A judge sentenced 26-year-old Jessie Danielle Tyler to 15 years in prison on Wednesday. She pleaded guilty to aggravated child abuse.

Morristown police say Tyler was babysitting the four-year-old in December of 2010 when she gave him the cold bath and forced him outside.

Police say the boy's body temperature was 83 degrees.
