Russian mom gets 8 years for leaving baby on road
Russian mother sentenced to 8 years in prison for planting her baby boy on busy highway
By The Associated Press

MOSCOW (AP) A Russian court sentenced a young mother and her brother to least eight years in jail each Tuesday after they acknowledged putting the woman's 9-month-old son on a four-lane highway outside Moscow in hopes he would get killed.

The Moscow Regional Court said 24-year-old Elena Osina and her 21-year-old brother Alexander pleaded guilty to attempted murder in the May 2011 incident. A passing motorist rescued the child unharmed after about 10 minutes, and the boy has since been adopted.

The motorist earlier told Russian media he thought he saw a kitten or a dog on the road before he stopped. The woman and her brother were watching what was happening near the road, investigators said.



Investigators said the boy had been lying on a poorly lit section and his survival was a miracle.

In previous testimony, Osina said life had become hard with the baby her parents, who they lived with, complained and her boyfriend had moved out. After the verdict in which she got eight years in prison and her brother got nine Osina said on television she thought the sentences were too harsh.

"Everyone can make a mistake," she told Channel One.
