A former Minneapolis daycare provider who attempted to hang a toddler in her home avoided prison Monday after a judge sentenced her to ten years of probation.

Nataliia Karia, 43, received the sentence after pleading guilty to charges of attempted murder and third-degree assault in February for hanging the toddler from a noose in her basement, KARE reported.

Karia also pleaded guilty to one count of criminal vehicular operation for striking a pedestrian, a driver, and a bicyclist with her vehicle as she fled her home and attempted suicide in November 2016. All of her victims survived their injuries.

“I apologize, and I don’t know if you will be able to forgive me. I have no excuse for what I did,” Karia — who came to the U.S. from Ukraine in 2006 — said at her sentencing.

The Star Tribune reported that in addition to her probation, the judge ordered that Karia receive mental health treatment and be subject to electronic home monitoring for a minimum of two months.

Judge Jay Quam called her crimes “the perfect storm of factors unlikely to ever be repeated” and determined after consulting a few doctors that Karia is “a low risk” re-offender.
