Deputies say a woman admitted to smoking cannabis before she breastfed her child who was taken to the hospital because of seizures.
Paramedics were called to a home in Pierre Part Sunday after they received reports of a small child suffering from seizures. The Assumption Parish Sheriff’s Office says it was alerted after the child tested positive for cannabis at an area hospital.
Deputies questioned the mother, 22-year-old Kassidy Rodrigue, who was the only one home with the infant. The sheriff’s office says she admitted to smoking cannabis before breastfeeding the child.
Rodrigue was arrested and booked on charges of second-degree cruelty to a juvenile and child desertion. Her bond is set at $125,000.
