Woman admits giving marijuana to toddler

AN American woman has admitted giving her two-year-old daughter marijuana and using her mobile phone to record the child smoking it.

Hamilton County court officials say 21-year-old Jessica Gamble of suburban Cincinnati pleaded guilty today to corruption of another with drugs and tampering with evidence. Prosecutors dropped a child endangering charge in exchange for the plea.

Prosecutors say Gamble gave the toddler marijuana and used her mobile phone to record video of the girl smoking in August.

The Cincinnati Enquirer reports that Gamble’s lawyer told the judge that Gamble has a history of mental illness and learning disorders.

Gamble could get up to six and a half years at her sentencing on December 16. She could have faced five additional years on the dropped charge.
