NYC Baby Sitter Convicted In Boy's Bucket Drowning

NEW YORK (AP) - A New York City baby sitter who fell asleep has been convicted in the death of an 11-month-old boy who was left unattended and drowned in a bucket of water.

A jury found Krystal Khan guilty Tuesday in the death of James Farrior on June 15, 2009.

Prosecutors say Khan took over-the-counter cold medication even though she knew it caused drowsiness and she was supposed to be watching James.

After Khan fell asleep, James tumbled headfirst into a mop bucket containing about 6 inches of water.

The 30-year-old Khan was convicted of reckless assault of a child by a day care provider and endangering the welfare of a child. She faces up to four years in prison at her sentencing next month.

Khan's attorney had said the mother of two was "extremely remorseful."
