OMAHA, Neb. (AP) — A Bellevue woman who pleaded no contest to attempted child abuse after police say she twisted the genitals of her boyfriend’s 5-year-old son has been sentenced to two months in jail.

Hollie Budka, 50, was also sentenced Wednesday to two years’ probation. She will begin serving her jail sentence Monday.

Police have said they were called after the boy’s mother noticed marks and bruising on his neck and genitals following the boy’s visit to his father’s house in January 2018. The boy told investigators that Budka twisted his genitals and beat him with a belt after he had wet the bed.

An Omaha woman charged with child abuse for twisting the testicles of her boyfriend’s 5-year-old son has been sentenced to 60 days in jail.

Budka was not supposed to be alone with the children, according to a divorce agreement made by both of his parents.

The boy’s mother said that she, other relatives and elementary school officials had made multiple reports to Child Protective Services over the last couple of years about her two boys, then ages 5 and 9, before Budka’s arrest.
