A mother who threw boiling water on her young daughter will serve the better part of a decade in prison.
Tiffany Fortune, 33, will serve seven years behind bars for aggravated battery of a child. The Peoria Heights woman, sentenced Wednesday, threw the hot water on her child back in March. The girl had to be taken to a hospital in Springfield for treatment.
Fortune initially said it was an accident, but later admitted she scalded her daughter out of frustration.
