Spring Hill mother pleads guilty in child abuse

Posted: Updated:

A Middle Tennessee mother is going to jail over a shocking case of child abuse.

Shelley Blair pleaded guilty Tuesday to two counts of aggravated assault, one count of aggravated kidnapping and one count of kidnapping.

In October 2008, police found Blair's 12-year-old son and 14-year-old daughter wandering the streets of their neighborhood in Spring Hill.

Both children told police they had been hit and kept in the closet. The girl weighed only 40 pounds when she was discovered.

In return for her plea, the court dropped charges of child neglect against Blair.

She is scheduled for sentencing on Dec. 7.
