A Texas woman accused of exposing her son to unnecessary medical tests and procedures – including more than 320 hospital stays – was found guilty of ruthlessly inflicting injury on a child, according to a report.
Kaylene Bowen- Wright pleaded guilty to Dallas court last Thursday. The Fort Worth Star telegram reported
that the 35-year-old's sentenced to 20 years in prison is scheduled for October.
Child Protective Services removed the custody of the boy in 2017 after a hospital in Dallas pointed out that the medical staff was diagnosed as having no cancer or many of Bowen's reported symptoms.
CPS reported that the boy had been at least 323 times in hospitals and children's centers in Dallas and Houston and had performed 13 major operations between 2009 and 2016.
The boy's father, Ryan Crawford, told the newspaper on Friday, "I am glad that she has decided to do the right thing. Finally, the lies had to stop.

Crawford was made the sole managing curator of the now 10-year-old.
"Medical abuse is under-reported every day," added the dad. "Now is the time to move forward and make sure that no child suffers the abuse my son has suffered."
