The woman convicted in Bayfield County of causing her toddler's death was sentenced to 2 1/2 years behind bars Monday.

Chelsea Cadotte was convicted of two felonies and a misdemeanor, including homicide by negligent vehicle operation.

The charges stem from a car accident last year when Cadotte's SUV flipped over ejecting three kids and her 15-year-old sister, whom were allegedly not wearing seatbelts.

Part of her sentencing includes probation, extended supervision, and speaking to the community about dangers of not buckling up your children.
