SARNIA, ON - A mother who beat her two toddlers so bad they were left with fractured ribs and covered with bruises was sentenced Wednesday to three years in prison.Korrie Lynn Kinnear, 23, of Sarnia pleaded guilty to criminal negligence causing bodily harm between 2009 to 2011.
One of the children had 13 rib fractures and the other had two rib fractures. Both children were under two years old when injured.
Court heard the assaults had started with slaps but progressed to backhanded punches as Kinnear attempted to control the children's behaviour.
The single mother never hit them on the face and never took them for medical treatment of the injuries.
Court heard Kinnear is a heavy drinker and oxycodone abuser.
A pre-sentence report indicated Kinnear has had a difficult life and suggested the abused became the abuser, defence lawyer Peter Peterson said.
The judge imposed a lifetime weapons ban and Kinnear must provide police a DNA sample for the national databank.
