Amanda Brumfield Sentenced to 20 Years in Prison

by at . Comments

Amanda Brumfield, Billy Bob Thornton's estranged daughter, was sentenced Thursday to 20 years in prison for aggravated manslaughter, the Orlando Sentinel reports.

Even worse? The victim was her one-year-old goddaughter.

In October 2008, Brumfield was babysitting Olivia Madison Garcia, who died while in her care. Brumfield, 32, was initially charged with murder, but found not guilty.

The manslaughter charge stuck, however. Big time.

"I miss Olivia just as much as anybody does," Amanda said at Thursday's sentencing before breaking down, according to the Central Florida newspaper.

Since her arrest, Amanda Brumfield has maintained that the infant hit her head falling, trying to climb out of a playpen. Apparently a jury was unswayed.

Olivia's mother, Heather Murphy, told the newspaper that the sentence was "more than I expected." No word if she will appeal the 20-year-sentence.


i kno im way 2 soft 2 b reading a story like this, b/c im pregnant& my emotions can get the best of me. I can say, i wasnt there & therefore do not kno wut happen'd, but & will say that @ that age (1yr), that kids do have accidents. F a child can get out of a playpen, that must b a busy baby. My 2yr old is very rough, so i have 2 keep a CLOSE eye b/c the min u turn ur bak, anything can happen. Honestly, i have the baddest 2yr old n NC, & yes i'd safely say that. No that is not good, but my 6yr old is an angel,& my 2yr is "5 handfuls of work alone". Hope Amanda didnt purposely let her fall, but i kno accidents happen...thank God i have not had anythng seriously happen w/ my bad but beautiful 2yr old
