A Phoenix mother has been sentenced to 10 years probation on child abuse charges.

Judge John Ditsworth made the ruling for Candice Basilio on Friday morning in Maricopa County, according to court spokesman Vincent Funari.

Her husband, Taylor Basilio, 29, was sentenced earlier this month to six years in prison for child abuse.

Doctors found their 7-week-old son had a skull fracture when the infant was brought to the hospital for a flu shot, police said.

Both parents of the child are deaf and required a sign language interpreter.

According to the police report, the boy's mother indicated she was scared for her husband because she didn't want him to go to jail.

Taylor Basilio told a doctor he had shaken the baby three different times. He also admitted to pulling on the child's arms "out of frustration," the report said. The father stated he had done "stupid things lately."

Candice Basilio called detectives and admitted to seeing her husband shake and try to choke their child. She also confessed to shaking the baby on two different occasions dating back before Thanksgiving, according to police records.

The infant had two significant skull fractures, a broken left clavicle and numerous rib and leg fractures.
