OHIO (NEWS10) – The woman accused of tampering with her son’s feeding tube was sentenced on Tuesday to 180 days in jail.
Jessica Valik pleaded guilty to misdemeanor child endangerment earlier this month. She’s the mother of Baby Jax. He has a rare and painful skin condition that affects his entire body.
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.
The judge also ordered Valik to stay off of the property of Cincinnati Children’s Hospital.
