TITUSVILLE, Fla. (AP) - A Titusville woman has been sentenced to 40 years in prison after being convicted of nearly starving to death a child under her watch.

Florida Todayreports that Sharon Glass was sentenced Friday despite a tearful plea for forgiveness. Her 90-year-old father also spoke on her behalf. Prior to imposing sentence, Judge David Dugan called Glass's conduct in abusing a 12-year-old boy calculated and evil.

Glass was convicted in January of seven felonies connected to the abuse. The child was found weighing 40 pounds when he was discovered by authorities in 2012. The boy in the case is the son of Glass's boyfriend, who faces similar charges.

If Glass completes her prison sentence she will have to serve another 30 years of probation.
