LEESVILLE, La. (AP) - Vernon Parish authorities say a 22-year-old Rosepine mother is facing charges after her 10-month-old child tested positive for meth at a hospital.
Detectives were contacted on Jan. 17 by Beauregard Memorial Hospital emergency room personnel about the child.
Detectives interviewed the child's mother, Heather Jenkins, who said she had been to a house where meth was used and that the child may have been exposed while there.
Jenkins was arrested and booked with possession of meth and cruelty to a juvenile. Her bond was set at $35,000.
It was unclear whether Jenkins has an attorney.
