No Prison Time for Pennsylvania Mother After Death of Baby
By CBS Philly. A Pennsylvania mother who prosecutors say killed her 11-week-old son with a lethal mix of drugs in her breast milk is not going to prison. Under terms of a plea agreement, a judge has sentenced 31-year-old Samantha Jones to three years’ probation and 100 hours of community service, after she pleaded guilty to involuntary manslaughter. . .
The investigation began on April 2, 2018 when the child was found pale, with bloody mucous coming from his nose. . .
According to an affidavit, Jones told police she’d been too tired to make the baby a bottle when he awoke crying and instead breast fed him. A few hours later, the baby was pale and died at a hospital.
Jones told police she had been prescribed methadone because of a painkiller addiction. Jones was approved to take methadone, and the drug alone is not considered unsafe for breastfeeding mothers and their babies.
