PUNTA GORDA — A woman arrested last year in connection to the bathtub drowning of her 11-month-old son will avoid prison time.

As part of a plea deal reached Tuesday at the Charlotte County Justice Center, Swat will serve 36 months’ probation and must complete 50 hours of community service by speaking publicly about preventing child drowning deaths.
