MEDFORD, Ore. (AP) - Misdemeanor neglect charges have been filed against an Oregon woman whose children reportedly put drug needles in their mouths while they were left with strangers in a motel room.
Tisha Watson pleaded not guilty at her arraignment earlier this month. The Mail Tribune reports Watson was booked into the Jackson County Jail. Bail was set at $50,000.
In court documents, police said Watson appeared unable to provide for the two children, one of whom is a toddler. Police said she admitted leaving the kids with a stranger, and that they possibly ingested a drug at a motel in downtown Medford.
Court records show Watson has a history of arrests on accusations of driving under the influence of intoxicants, drug possession and driving while her license was suspended or revoked.
