The family used to live in Johnstown, NY but moved to Ohio to care for Baby Jax.

Officials say Valik was sentenced to 180 days in jail with credit for time served. Her child is still at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital under the guardianship of his maternal grandfather who we understand either has or will be filing for custody in New York.
