The 40-year-old Hartford City woman was sentenced Tuesday after pleading guilty last month to dangerous control of a child.

The charge refers to cases where a parent or guardian permits a child to possess a firearm.

The Star Press in Muncie reports she acknowledged to investigators she was aware her son had a firearm, but never discussed the matter with him.

The boy had been in trouble related to guns before. He took the weapon to Blackford High School on October 30, resulting in a lockdown and a delay in dismissal of students.

The Associated Press isn’t identifying the woman to avoid identifying her son
