ANNISTON, Ala. (AP) - Authorities say a 21-year-old Anniston woman was charged with giving her boyfriend's 10-week-old baby crystal methamphetamine and ecstasy.
Calhoun County Sheriff Larry Amerson says Stevette Patrice Chapman was arrested Friday on charges of aggravated child abuse, two counts of possession of a controlled substance, and two counts of intent to distribute a controlled substance.
Amerson says the baby was left with the father for a visit early Thursday. At some point during the day, the father left Chapman alone with the baby.
When the baby's mother returned, she noticed that the baby was sick and took the baby to the hospital.
Medical personnel conducted a blood test and found evidence of crystal meth and ecstasy.
Investigators from Daybreak Crisis Recovery Center and the Sheriff's Office arrested Chapman. Her bail is set at $90,000.
