A Beltrami County District judge sentenced Bianca Hazelrigg to a year in jail, but stayed all but 24 days on Monday.

The Bemidji Pioneer (http://bit.ly/10wEXs2 ) says Hazelrigg must also spend two years on probation. She earlier pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor charge of child endangerment.

Court documents say Hazelrigg left the children unattended in the car in 88-degree temperatures. The children are OK.
