The mother of a young boy who was found in December with bruises all over his body and a broken leg has pleaded guilty to first-degree wanton endangerment, a Class D felony, according to the Franklin Circuit Court Clerk's office.
Ashley Travillian, 19, of Frankfort, was arrested Jan. 8 after a grand jury indicted her on a first-degree criminal abuse charge, which is a Class C felony. She pleaded guilty to the amended charge on Friday in Franklin Circuit Court.
Her husband, John Travillian, 21, also has been charged with first-degree criminal abuse.
A neighbor who baby-sat 3-month-old Joshua noticed the bruises and contacted authorities.
