Mother gets 6 years in prison for stabbing 3-year-old son

A woman was sentenced to six years in prison on Tuesday for stabbing her 3-year-old son with a kitchen knife during a domestic dispute with the child’s father.

A judge in a Norwalk courtroom sentenced Michelle Betancourt, 23, after she pleaded no contest to one felony count of assault with a deadly weapon, according to the Los Angeles County district attorney’s office.

As part of the plea deal, a second assault with a deadly weapon charge against her was dismissed, Deputy Dist. Atty. Efrain Matthew Aceves told The Times.
