PLYMOUTH A Plymouth woman has reached a plea agreement for a case of aggravated battery and child neglect.

The Plymouth Pilot reports that Diana Turner will plead guilty to the crime. She will spend the next 90 days in jail and the following three years on probation.

According to court documents, the then 18-year-old Turner told her mother she had put her hand over the one month old child's mouth to stop it from crying.

The child didn't suffer any long lasting injuries but was taken to the hospital at the time for breathing problems.
