(CBS/AP) ANCHORAGE, Alaska – Jessica Beagley, an Alaska woman convicted of punishing her adopted Russian son by squirting hot sauce into his mouth, was spared immediate jail time on Monday.

Beagley, 36, was given three years of probation, a 180-day suspended jail sentence and a $2,500 fine – also suspended – after she was convicted last week of misdemeanor child abuse. Prosecutors said she used a videotape of herself punishing the 7-year-old boy as a ploy to get on the “Dr. Phil” TV show.

Beagley submitted the eight-minute tape for a show segment titled “Mommy Confessions.” She said the boy had lied about getting into trouble at school.
