PHOENIX (AP) - An Arizona woman who left her 5-week-old baby in a car seat on the roof of her car when she drove off has been sentenced to 16 years of supervised probation.

Catalina Clouser pleaded guilty to child abuse and misdemeanor DUI in February. She was sentenced Wednesday by Cynthia Bailey of Maricopa County Superior Court.

Phoenix police arrested Clouser last year after an infant strapped in a safety seat was found in an intersection. The baby was in good condition.

According to police, Clouser forgot the boy was on the roof her car when she left the home of friends where she had smoked marijuana.

Clouser was sentenced to three months of deferred time in jail, but she won't have to serve that time if she successfully completes probation.
