Woman Sentenced to Jail for Torture

A drifter accused of torturing an 11-year-old boy has been sentenced to 37 years in prison.

Prosecutors say twenty-one-year-old Michaela Clerc and her gang scalded, whipped and starved the child and stuffed him in a closet in the house they rented in portage.

Investigators discovered the body of the boy's mother, Tammie Garlin, buried behind the house.

Clerc pleaded no contest to four charges in February

    She deserves to get a longer sentence for what she did. I wish we had the death penalty in Wisconsin.
