A woman who pleaded guilty to child abuse was sentenced to three years in prison Thursday. 

Breya Allen and her boyfriend Tyriese Howard were arrested last year on nearly 50 counts of child abuse combined. 

Police say one of Howard’s three kids ended up in the hospital after drinking mouthwash because he was thirsty. 

Doctors told police scars on the boy’s body also showed he had been abused his whole life. 

As part of her plea deal, Allen faced up to nine years in prison. Judge Briana Zamora sentenced her to three years followed by probation. 

Allen will be required to turn herself in a week from Thursday. 

As for Howard, he’s set to go to trial in February.
