JEFFERSON, Ore.-- A woman was jailed Friday night after police said she gave her toddler cocaine. 

Kalin Swartz is accused of giving the 2-year-old boy cocaine during a supervised visit in September.

A judge ordered supervised visits because the boy's father was concerned about his safety.

According to court records, she didn't get the boy medical attention when he suffered second-degree burns while in her care.

Swartz is not allowed to have any contact with her son and is scheduled to be back in court in late January.
