Tiffany Lynn Mitchell was sentenced to 30 months in prison after being charged with manslaughter in the death of her 2-year-old daughter. Mitchell said the girl died after apparently taking an oxycodone tablet she left on her nightstand.
Spring Hill, Florida - Tiffany Lynn Mitchell, a Tampa Bay-area mother charged with manslaughter after she said her 2-year-old daughter died after having taken an oxycodone tablet she'd left on her night stand, received a sentence of 30 months in prison Monday.
According to the Tampa Bay Times, Mitchell could have been sentenced to as many as 13 years in prison, but her family plead for less time, even probation.
Their plea, they say, is because her two sons need a mother, and that should out-weigh the need to punish a mistake.
