COLBERT COUNTY, AL (WAFF) -

A woman convicted in Colbert County of torture and willful abuse of a child is now serving out her sentence.

Cinderella Sunshine Clever was convicted in 2012 and sentenced to 10 years in prison.

Investigators said she used a clothespin on her 5-year-old stepson's genitals as a form of punishment.

The District Attorney said the case had been appealed, but the Court of Criminal Appeals recently affirmed the conviction. He filed a motion to impose her sentence.
