The child died in 2011 from a fentanyl overdose.

Matt Holley And gets 5 years of probation? This is disgusting
David Holley This story always bothered me. How the hell does an infant get fentanyl in their system? It had to be administered and who the hell is dumb enough to give that to an infant? It's deadly. Unless the baby got ahold of a patch but that is unlikely. Idk, it just makes me sick.
Cindy Weems PROBATION!!!!!!!! Seriously. A baby is KILLED and probation is the only punishment... Something is terribly wrong with this Judge...
Sandy Clampit So very sad for the parents of this baby. The judge should be ashamed of herself for giving a suspended sentence.
Nicole Rasmussen Nelson The hell kind of plea deal is this?? She already lied about the whole situation for 6 years now, I’m betting she knows exactly how this baby got this drug into his system but she will never tell. She’s just taking her probation and running with it. Smh
Katie Masters She was indicted on perjury. If the DA can't prove beyond reasonable doubt that she was the one who administered the fentanyl then she cannot be convicted. Lesson here is do not trust an unlicensed daycare. Ever.

Joey Freeman They be wanting to put a 10hp on the lake next...put more water in the lake where will be more room in the boat lanes..... they have ruined the lake with no water....
Cj Tidwell Stuff like this would be less likely to happen if the LDWF would get off their rear ends and quit being lazy and flood all the WMA duck spots a month before season got here where there would be plenty of water.
