A California woman, namely Sarah Jane Lockner, 27, who allegedly tried to drown her newborn baby in a toilet at McDonald after giving birth in 2017 won't serve additional jail time following a plea deal with prosecutors.

The woman, who accepted the plea deal earlier this year, was sentenced to four years supervised probation last week.

She was initially charged with attempted murder but in January, the charge was dropped after pleading no contest to a single felony child endangerment count.

Sarah was further sentenced to one year in jail on Friday but she walked out of court moments later after receiving credit for time she had already served.

She was ordered to complete a series of parenting classes.

Sarah was working as a cashier in a McDonald in California when she gave birth to a baby inside a bathroom stall.

Investigators arrested her after learning she’d allegedly tried to flush the newborn baby down the toilet.

When a coworker went into the bathroom to check on the woman, she saw blood on the floor. When asked about the blood, she claiming told her co-worker that she was having a "heavy period."

The co-worker then looked over the stall and saw Sarah holding a baby from its back and the newborn's face appeared down in the toilet bowl.

Police were called after which they arrested the woman. The baby was taken to a hospital after the first responders resuscitate him. The child is now doing fine.
