She was then sentenced to five years, according to the Pulaski County Circuit Clerk’s Office.

This is in addition to the 20-year sentence she received last month after her probation was revoked by a judge.

Polston was on probation in March when she forced her 14-year-old daughter to drink alcohol to the point of getting sick.

Polston told police she did it because she caught her daughter drinking and wanted to deter her from drinking again.

In a video of the incident, the girl appears to be “highly intoxicated” and eventually falls face-first out of a chair, according to the Herald-Leader newspaper.

Investigators told the newspaper Polston can be heard on the video saying they could get a million dollars from MTV for the video.

Polston and others can also be heard laughing on the video from time-to-time, according to police.

The Pulaski County Circuit Clerk’s Office says Polston’s sentences will run concurrently.
