Holly Brewer sentenced to five years in prison

DERIDDER, La. (AP) - Holly A. Brewer has been sentenced to five years in prison after pleading guilty in June to second-degree cruelty to a juvenile.

Reportedly state District Judge C. Kerry Anderson sentenced the 21-year-old Brewer on Thursday.

Her son, 18-month-old John Thomas Anthony Brewer, died from injuries inflicted by her boyfriend, Jeffery Denby, on June 22, 2009. Denby was sentenced to life in prison in May.

Sam Jones, Brewer's attorney, argued the sentence was excessive and said he will appeal it.
