CARTERSVILLE — A woman has been given a two-year prison sen­tence in the 2017 drown­ing of her 3-year-old son.

Cit­ing records, The At­lanta Jour­nal-Con­sti­tu­tion re­ports that 32-year-old Bob­bie Jes­sica Prather en­tered a ne­go­ti­ated plea Tues­day in Bar­tow County Su­pe­rior Court. She’ll be on pro­ba­tion for 18 years after her prison term ends and will get credit for time served, dat­ing to May 29, 2017.

The North­west Ge­or­gia woman pleaded guilty to in­vol­un­tary man­slaugh­ter and other of­fenses. Of­fi­cials have said she left her son alone for more than 14 hours be­fore he was found un­re­spon­sive in a swim­ming pool. A deputy pulled Jagger Set­tles from the pool, but he was not breath­ing.
