Meth mom gets maximum sentence
August 30, 2005 - kxl.com

Jenny Thomas pleaded guilty earlier this month to a felony charge of breastfeeding her baby boy while high on meth.

A mother has been sentenced to 18 months in prison for passing methamphetamine onto her baby through breastfeeding.

Prosecutors are calling it a hallmark case because it directly holds meth addicted mothers accountable for the harm they cause their children. Jenny Thomas pleaded guilty earlier this month to a felony charge of breastfeeding her baby boy while high on meth.

The charge is called 'Forcible Ingestion of a Controlled Substance' and carries a maximum penalty of a year-and-a-half in prison.

Marion County Deputy District Attorney Sarah Morris, said it's about time meth moms are held accountable for their actions. "If you decide that using meth is an idea you're going to embrace, you need to do something to safeguard your children from the addiction. That's not what Jenny Thomas did."

The case came about after Thomas brought her nine-month-old boy to a Salem Hospital. Tests revealed the infant had an extremely high concentration of meth in his system.

Monday, the judge handed down the maximum sentence.
