First offender's program for Madison mom who tied up child

MADISON (WKOW) -- A Madison woman has been placed in a first offender's program, after tying up her young child to a bed as she ran errands.

In December, authorities say 22-year old Katrena Salmon's two-year old son was able to slip out of the twine binding and was found by a city worker on a street near his home in near freezing conditions. Authorities say the child was unhurt.

Salmon entered a guilty plea Tuesday to misdemeanor child neglect. Judge William Foust withheld sentencing, and placed Salmon in the first offender's program. Successful completion of the program involves the criminal charge being dropped.
