Woman sentenced in wake of child meth poisoning
A Bear Lake woman will spend nearly a year in county prison after leaving methamphetamine near her 4-month-old child who came into contact with it and was poisoned.
Kodie Fuller, 31, Bear Lake, was sentenced by President Judge Maureen Skerda on Friday on charges of possession of a controlled substance and endangering the welfare of a child.
On Nov. 18, 2019 at 6:14 p.m. police were dispatched to Corry Memorial Hospital as the child was having seizure-like symptoms. Fuller told police she was online with the child and believed the child must have had contact with methamphetamine left by her boyfriend. The boyfriend said that Fuller was responsible.
Skerda told Fuller that her conduct could have resulted in her child’s death and that future instances of such conduct are possible.
Skerda said Fuller may think this was unintentional but emphasized “to me, they’re intentional. (You) made the decision to have methamphetamine in your household.”
