GREAT FALLS, Mont. (AP) - A Great Falls woman has been given a three-year deferred sentence for felony criminal endangerment for failing to seek medical attention after her 1-year-old daughter drank meth-laced orange juice.
The Great Falls Tribune reports (http://bit.ly/Ouu5jl ) Angela Rose Haas was sentenced Tuesday by District Judge Kenneth Neill.
Haas' husband, Lee Edwin Hass, also received a three-year deferred sentence in the case.
The two were charged in June 2011 after Angela Hass told social workers that their daughter accidentally drank the juice they said was left by a friend who had visited the night before. They said they weren't aware she drank the juice until she started acting strangely.
They acknowledged not seeking medical attention out of fear the child would be taken away.
