KTRK-TV reports, Sidney Woytasczyk was sentenced to four years for abandoning a child.
Investigators say she abandoned her newborn on a sidewalk outside her apartment last year in the Harris County community of Spring.
The baby girl was alone in the dirt for about six hours before neighbors found her covered in ants.
Authorities claimed Woytasczyk abandoned the infant so the child wouldn't come between her and her boyfriend.
