ALBANY, GA (WALB) - A Lee County home day care owner pleaded guilty to ten counts of reckless conduct following an investigation into the death year of a baby in her care.

Barbara Ann Fuller was sentenced to one year on probation, and can not operate a day care in her home or work in daycare during that probation period. She was also fined $675.

Four month old Jace Hester was found not breathing at Fuller's Lee County Home day care. The GBI autopsy ruled his death an unexplained sudden infant death, with no criminal negligence. But crime scene photos showing mold and filth in the home led to the charges.

Fuller told the Judge she was still caring for children in her home, and she was ordered to stop during her probation.
