Abused 3-year-old boy's mother in court Tuesday

Posted: Updated:
FLINT, MI (WNEM) -

A mother charged with abusing her own child will be in court Tuesday.

Prosecutors say 23-year-old Aleesha Wyatt allowed her live-in boyfriend to watch her son, after knowing the man had been abusing the boy.

The 3-year-old has been in serious condition since the beating on November first.

His mother could be the first person charged under Michigan's Dominick's Law which makes it a crime for witnesses to ignore abuse.

Her pretrial exam is set for 8:30 a.m.

If convicted, Wyatt and her boyfriend face life in prison.
