Fort Wayne, Ind. (Indiana’s NewsCenter) - A Fort Wayne woman learned Monday that she'll only spend about another two weeks in jail for allowing her boyfriend to tie small children to the hood of a moving car.

30-year-old Jessica Clark had pleaded guilty to neglect of a dependent after her boyfriend tied her daughter and two other kids to the hood of a car at a liquor store in May.

She was arrested with 29-year-old Aaron Stefanski when people called 911 after seeing the kids tied to the hood of the moving car.

The judge sentenced her to two and a half years in prison, but only ordered her to serve six months.

With credit for the time she's already served, she'll serve another 13 days in jail, and then spend two years on probation.

The first six months of that, she'll have to wear an ankle bracelet and must complete her GED.
