A woman from Plainfield was sentenced Friday to 60 days in prison after her dogs mauled a home health aid and left her severely injured three years ago.

It was an emotional day inside the courtroom as the daughter of the victim spoke out.

Jenna Allen sat quietly before a judge as the daughter of the mauling victim read a statement from her sister.

Lynn Denning is still recovering from horrific injuries that she suffered in 2014 when two of Allen'[s rottweilers attacked her, biting off her nose and parts of her face, as well as leaving a gaping hole in her arm.

"My mom will never be the same woman she was," her daughter said.

Through her sister, Denning said this case was not about revenge, but rather to make dog owner's responsible.

"For me this is about setting a precedent," she said.

Allen responded with a short statement.

Her attorney said they will appeal the conviction.

She is currently free on bond while that process plays out.

Allen had five rottweilers. The two involved in the attack have been put down.
