Billy Bob Thornton's Daughter Sentenced

Amanda Brumfield, Billy Bob Thornton's estranged daughter, was sentenced to 20 years in prison for the death of her friend's 1-year-old child. She was found guilty of aggravated manslaughter in May, but she was acquitted of murder and child-abuse charges. Brumfield says the child fell to her death while climbing out of a playpen, but an Orange County medical examiner testified that the child's death was intentional and that it was impossible to get such an injury from falling from such a small height. Brumfield waited two hours before calling for help.
