HENRICO, VA (WWBT) - A Henrico mom will not spend any more time in jail on charges she allowed her toddler to pour bleach all over himself.

Deanna Griffith was sentenced to time served.

But she will be on probation, and has been ordered to take drug tests.

Griffith pled guilty to child neglect, following an incident that happened in early June.

Authorities said Griffith fell asleep, and her 16-month-old boy got into the laundry room, where he spilled the bleach on his skin.

The child has recovered.
