An 11-day-old infant died after being allowed to leave the hospital with her mother, despite testing positive for drugs when she was born. Now the question remains, who’s at fault?
Investigators are trying to figure out why a mother who gave birth to a child who tested positive for drugs was allowed to leave the hospital. That child would be found dead at the Rio Inn and Suites 11 days after she was born, and her mother, Jennifer Sierra, would be arrested.
That mother is behind bars tonight on a charge of felony child endangerment after deputies were called out on Wednesday to the motel on North Beale Road.
