New Jersey woman faces neglect, drug charges

In a tragic case, one woman is looking at serious consequences related to an incident involving her child. The New Jersey resident was found passed out in her car, with her 2-year-old child dead in the backseat. She was booked on a total of nine charges, including neglect and drug charges

The woman maintains that she does not know what happened to her child. The child's father went out to the vehicle to check on the mother and daughter and found the child dead, in the car, still strapped into the car seat. A search warrant for the woman's house and vehicle supposedly returned a defaced handgun, drugs and drug paraphernalia. Some details about the woman's behavior have surfaced, but the evidence of the case is still pending, awaiting the autopsy and other information.

The woman appeared in court and asked to be let out on bail. She appeared distraught in the courtroom as she told the judge and prosecutors that, despite her troubled past, she hoped to seek treatment and someday get her life back on track. Her attorney submitted that the woman was willing to take daily drug tests should she be allowed out on bail.

Her lawyer also argued that most of the evidence against the woman was circumstantial. Even so, she faces criminal neglect and drug charges. In the state of New Jersey, individuals facing charges may wish to contact a lawyer who can assist them with building a defense and protecting against any bogus charges based on insufficient evidence.
