Rhode Island Parents Charged After Baby Ingests Cocaine
Two parents in Warwick, RI have been charged with neglect after it was found that their baby had ingested the drug cocaine.
According to WJAR, 25-year-old Erin Hobin and 31-year-old Christopher Kidd admitted to using drugs, and back in July their baby was rushed to Hasbro Children’s Hospital after a 9 month old had ingested cocaine.
Both Hobin and Kidd told police that they do use heroin, and that they also used cocaine around the time of their babies accident. When the police searched their house, they found prescription pills, drug paraphernalia and narcotics. Both have been charged with child neglect, violating parole and are being held without bail.
Currently we don’t know the condition of the baby.
