A woman has been charged with injecting her three small children heroin. Police said the woman’s son told them the mother used a needle to inject him and his sisters with “feel good medicine” to help them sleep.
The children were 6, 4 and 2 years old. According to the Pierce County Prosecutor’s Office, the dangerous mother, Ashlee Hutt, 24, of Washington DC, US, has been charged with unlawful delivery of a controlled substance to a child, criminal mistreatment and child assault. The woman’s husband had been charged with a similar offence earlier, and both of them are currently in custody. Child protection units have since taken custody of the couple’s children.
