A New Mexico woman was sentenced to 16 years in prison Monday after leaving her newborn son in a dumpster in the city of Hobbs in January of last year.

The baby, who was found alive by dumpster divers, is doing well, his only health conditions being a potential heart murmur and asthma, according to his father, Stephen Astorga, as reported by KOB 4.

Then-18-year-old  Alexis Avila was found guilty on Monday of attempted first degree murder and child abuse resulting in great bodily harm. Before the trial Avila faced a sentence between 12 and 18 years. (Excerpt from Breitbart.)
