A North Platte woman who kept her kids in a kennel has been sentenced to jail for violating her probation.

Ashly Clark was sentenced to 180 days in jail in Lincoln County District Court.

Clark admitted to failing to complete the requirements of her probation, which included attending required classes and notifying her probation officer if she would be leaving the jurisdiction.

Clark was arrested in October of 2011 after she left her five and three-year-old sons in a kennel over night because, she said, they were trying to crawl out of a window in their mobile home.

Clark was given credit for time served and released.

    no she does not have her kids… thank the lord… from my understandin she hasn’t seen them in 6 months… its sad I think… if I lost my kids to the state I would do everything in my power to see them everyday and work my hardest to get them back in my arms… some people just don’t need to have kids. I think the state should force her to have her tubes tied if they are not already done
