Mother Pleads Guilty To Letting Son Ingest Cocaine

A Boyle County mother, who police say allowed her 18-month-old son to ingest cocaine, entered a guilty plea in court Thursday morning.

Ashley Carrier plead guilty to wanton endangerment charges. A judge recommended a four year prison sentence, but she will not have to serve time if she goes through a five year diversion program.

Carrier, and the child's aunt, Jessica Coffman, were arrested last fall.

Coffman was sentenced to three years in prison earlier this week.

Carrier will be back in court on August 5th for final sentencing.
