LA CROSSE, Wis. (AP) — Prosecutors have charged a La Crosse woman after her 10-month-old son ingested heroin.
The La Crosse Tribune reports 32-year-old Jessica Borger was charged Thursday with child neglect causing great bodily harm and bail jumping for allegedly violating a no-contact order with the child.
According to a criminal complaint, first responders were called to a residence on Dec. 22 on a report of a infant choking.
They gave the child Narcan, a drug that reverses opioid overdoses, and took him to a hospital.
Borger said a guest used heroin and probably left some behind where the child could consume it.
Online court records didn't list an attorney for Borger.
