A Grand Island woman was sentenced to four years of probation after an incident where two children were badly injured.

Stephanie Wedige was convicted after allowing six kids to ride on the running boards outside her SUV in Grand Island back in 20-16. When she stopped, two children fell off and hit their heads, and one was flown to Children's Hospital in Omaha.

She pleaded no contest to reduced charges, including six counts of misdemeanor negligent child abuse and one count of willful reckless driving.
