A Skiatook woman accused of exposing her infant daughter to methamphetamine was charged Tuesday.
Amy Lynn Daugherty, 25, is charged with child neglect, Tulsa County District Court filings show.
Tulsa County sheriff’s deputies were called to St. Francis Hospital on April 24 after a pediatrician reported finding high levels of meth in the 8-month-old’s system, Sgt. Shannon Clark said following her arrest.
Clark said Daugherty told deputies she and the child were at a residence where meth and marijuana were being used two days prior to her arrest. She said the baby was never outside her supervision and that she “didn’t know where (her daughter) would have ingested” methamphetamine.
The child and two siblings were placed in Department of Human Services custody.
Daugherty remains at the Tulsa Jail in lieu of $25,000 bond.
She pleaded guilty to accessory to a felony in connection to an armed robbery and received a five-year deferred sentence in 2011.
