WESTMINSTER (AP) — Prosecutors say a Garden Grove mother has been convicted of letting her 2-month-old baby suffocate after she went on a drinking binge.

Orange County prosecutor spokeswoman Farrah Emami says 27-year-old Corrina Atuatasi pleaded guilty Thursday to involuntary manslaughter and child abuse.

Prosecutors say Atuatasi left her baby at home to join a neighbor for drinks for several hours on Oct. 30. The baby was found dead, face-down in a pile of clothing the next morning.

Emami says Atuatasi would have faced a maximum sentence of 12 years in prison but made a deal with the court over the prosecution’s protest.

Atuatasi will serve one year in jail, six months of live-in alcohol treatment and one year of self-help programs.

Atuatasi faces formal sentencing Nov. 27.
