Jonesboro--In April, Tonya Curtis was arrested for over 30 charges against her. And today she faced the judge to hear her fate.

Judge Keith Blackman told Tonya Curtis that the communities most precious commodities is our children. He then explained to her that she had no right to enforce her values upon our children.

She was convicted on ten counts of contributing to the deliquency of a minor, nine counts of second degree endagering the welfare of a minor, one count for possesion for sale in a dry area, one count for knowingly furnishing or selling to a minor, one count for procurring liquor for another, one count for over possesion of beer, and finally one count for obstruction of governmental operations.

Curtis's attorney, Martin Lilly says that they have decided to appeal.

Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) advocate, Donna Lenners is pleased with the judges decision.

Lenners said, "I feel that Judge Blackman really took this seriously from his statements in court. He is trying to show parents that this is unacceptable."

Curtis is free on a bond appeal and her next court date is July 29th. Judge Blackman sentenced her to one year in jail, and will release her if she serves 40 consecutive days with good behavior. If the appeal fails,after her release she will be faced with one year probation and 180 hours of community service.
