A jury on Thursday returned a child abuse conviction against a Chandler woman whose toddler son suffered two broken arms, broken ankles and bleeding on his brain in 2007.

The conviction was for a lesser-degree felony than what she was indicted on, meaning she could get up to a year less behind bars if she is sentenced to prison.

According to a search warrant filed in Maricopa County Superior Court, paramedics responded to the home of Rana Krank, 28, on March 30, 2007, to find the 22-month-old child with a fast pulse and labored breathing.

Doctors found several broken bones that were in various stages of healing, bleeding on his brain and pneumonia, the warrant states.

Police also arrested Krank's live-in boyfriend, Alvin Broom, on child abuse charges. He is scheduled for trial later this month.
