The mother of two boys police found locked in a dog kennel inside a feces-strewn mobile home has escaped jail and instead will serve two years of probation after pleading no contest to felony child abuse
Ashly Clark, 23, from North Platte, Nebraska, changed her plea on Monday. Several other charges were dropped.
Prosecutors made deals with Clark and three other defendants in the case after a judge ruled that some of what they told investigators couldn't be used as evidence.
Police say they found Clark's two boys aged two and five sleeping in a wired-shut kennel last October inside a filthy home
