A Tulsa woman pleaded guilty to child neglect, but will not go to jail.
Yomara Alvarado is accused of leaving her three young children alone in a hot apartment back in July.
Alvarado was given a five-year deferred sentence.
According to the arrest report, the children, ages 5, 4, and 2, were left alone. Police say the home they were staying in did not have air conditioning and at one point, the temperature rose to 90 degrees inside.
The children became so hot they began pouring 20 bottles of water on themselves to stay cool. Officers say there wasn't any food within reach for the children to eat and the apartment was not secure.
