District Attorney Jan Scully announced today that Kristen Gibson was sentenced by the Honorable Michael P. Kenny to 25 years to life in prison. Gibson was found guilty of first degree murder after a court trial before Judge Kenny.

The judge also found Gibson guilty of assault on a child with force likely to produce great bodily injury resulting in the death of Baby Boy Gibson.

On July 9, 2008, 33 year-old Gibson gave birth to a full term baby boy in the toilet of her Rancho Cordova home. Gibson severed the umbilical cord with a pair of cuticle scissors and drowned the newborn baby in the toilet.

In reaching his verdict of first degree murder, Judge Kenny stated, "It appears to this court that in fact throughout her actions both during her pregnancy and at the time of the birth in the bathroom the defendant premeditated, deliberated and intended to kill Baby Boy Gibson." As to the second charge, Judge Kenny found "the evidence with regard to that count was overwhelming."
