Woman Sentenced For Letting Baby Ingest Cocaine

A Boyle County woman has learned her sentence for allowing a her nephew to ingest cocaine.

A judge sentenced Jessica Coffman to three years in prison at a hearing on Tuesday morning. However, she won't have to serve if she completes a five year diversion program.

Last September, Danville police arrested Coffman and her sister, Ashley Carrier. Police say Carrier's 18-month-old son had cocaine in his system.

Carrier is expected to plead guilty felony assault and wanton endangerment.
