The criminal case against a mid-state woman accused of trying to self-abort her baby closed after she pleaded guilty to the crime.
Anna Yocca was originally charged with attempted first degree murder for trying to terminate her 24-week pregnancy with a coat hanger.
Prosecutors initially indicted Yocca for trying to terminate the pregnancy at home. The infant was later delivered by C-section and suffered injuries in the process.
She pleaded guilty to a lesser charge of attempted procurement of a miscarriage.
She was released from jail, and all court costs were waived.
Yocca ended up serving more than a year in the Rutherford county jail.
