TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTWO) — A convict in a child starvation case learned Thursday how much time she’ll spend in prison.
“I’m so sorry for everything that’s happened,” says Robin Lee Kraemer during her comments to Judge Michael Lewis.
She is sentenced a consecutive 36-1/2 years and plans to appeal the sentence.
The maximum sentence was up to 54 years.
A jury found Kraemer guilty on nine counts, including neglect of a dependent resulting in death, on Sept. 21.
Robin Kraemer is one of four people from Rosedale, Indiana, who were arrested in the starvation death of 9-year-old Cameron Hoopingarner.
At the time of his death, Hoopingarner weighed just 15 pounds. He was also blind, had cerebral palsy, and an autopsy revealed he had meth in his system.
Hubert Kraemer, Chad Kraemer and Sarah Travioli also face charges of neglect of a dependent, maintaining a common nuisance and visiting a common nuisance.

ROSEDALE, Ind. (WISH) — A 6-year-old girl was airlifted to Riley Hospital for Children after an ATV crash in Vigo County left her with serious chest injuries.
It happened around 2 p.m. Tuesday on Valley View Lane near Rosedale, Indiana.
Conservation officers say the girl was turning a three-wheeled ATV when she drove over a 20-foot-high embankment and into a creek. She got pinned under the ATV briefly until her mother lifted it off of her.
Authorities say the girl was wearing a helmet. As of July 1, Indiana law requires all minors to wear a helmet while riding on an ATV.
