TULSA, Okla. (AP) – A Tulsa woman who pleaded no contest to operating a day care without a license and child neglect has been sentenced to three years in prison.

Chelsea Day, 28, also received seven years of probation on Monday. Day had been charged with child neglect and two counts of operating a child-care facility without a license from the state Department of Human Services.

An affidavit says that the department and police began investigating Day when a young girl was injured after Day failed to provide proper supervision in September 2012.

Day pleaded no contest to the charges on Jan. 25.
