"Mandy, I never believed you were this type of person."

Those are the words of a distraught mother. A mother of four who got her chance to speak to the woman who she entrusted to take care of her children.

Police say the woman, Amanda Taylor, allowed her boyfriend to make meth in her home-a home which was also a daycare.

The mother had two of her little ones at the daycare. One of them, her four-year old ended up testing for high levels of meth.

"It's because of your irresponsibility, I have no idea what's in store for my son," she said.

Taylor faced 25-years in prison after pleading guilty to charges, but received ten-years instead.

"I'm so sorry. Sorry to the kids, to the parents, to my children," said Taylor.

The verdict came after both defense and prosecutor's spoke out. After serving more than half her sentence she would then be eligible for parole.

She has 30-days to appeal with The Iowa Supreme Court if she chooses to.
