A Lincoln woman has been sentenced to six months in jail for sending her 11-year-old son into a store to shoplift, then abandoning the boy in the store's parking lot.

Thirty-one-year-old Batrina Perez was sentenced Friday in Lancaster County Court.

Prosecutors say Perez gave her son a list of food to steal and sent him into a grocery store. Store security stopped the boy when he wheeled a grocery cart full of $200 worth of food outside without paying.

Prosecutors say Perez drove off when she saw her son had been stopped and later told police her son was lying when he told officers she had ordered him to steal the food.
