BANGOR, Maine — The former Orono woman convicted last month of breaking the leg of her 9-month-old son was sentenced on Wednesday to three years behind bars with all but nine months suspended.

Lynn Crossman, 24, of Brewer admitted to hitting her son on the leg for crying while she was arguing with her parents on the phone in November 2010. The baby was treated for a broken leg.

The judge also sentenced her to two years of probation to be served after she is released.
