Child Exposed to Fentanyl by Parents
Phoenix, AZ (October 14, 2019): An Arizona couple is accused of drug possession, illicit drug use, and child endangerment as a result of events that occurred on October 7. One of the drug users admitted to smoking Percocet, and they were both found with burning tin foil that was suggestive of drug use.
The couple’s one-year-old daughter was found in the vehicle unconscious, and it took several minutes to wake her, according to official reports. She was taken to a hospital where it was discovered she had fentanyl in her system. The child is now under the care of the Department of Child Safety.
While some drugs can be helpful in alleviating medical conditions, illicit drug use can land you with a hefty fine, prison time, or both. This is especially true if you injure someone while driving under the influence of any impairing substance. The unfortunate truth is that many accidents are caused by DUI. If you or someone you know suffered an injury from someone driving under the influence, contact Lerner and Rowe Injury Attorneys. We’ll work with you on your personal injury case. Source: AZ Central
