A Chicago mother who admitted to intentionally dropping her baby on her head during a family argument will avoid jail time. Debra Katz, 19, has been sentenced to 30 months probation. She must also undergo drug treatment and avoid contact with her daughter.

Police in Round Lake Park arrested Katz back on July 11 after they say she purposely dropped her baby on the head in the middle of a street during a fight with her sister and brother-in-law.

The baby who was seven months old at the time was not seriously injured.

The child is now being cared for by her father.
