The jury convicted Lee Thursday evening and recommended an eight-year prison sentence and $5,000 fine.

Prosecutors say Victoria Lee, 38, needlessly put her daughter through multiple medical procedures that were not necessary. According to court documents, the girl underwent six MRIs, each of which required anesthesia, a spinal tap, EKGs, CT scans, bladder studies and physical therapy sessions.
