POLLOCK PINES (CBS13) – A pregnant El Dorado County mother is facing charges after smoking marijuana in front of her two young children, according to officials.
Deputies arrested 29-year-old Christine Ruhland on Monday evening after deputies learned she is six months pregnant and was smoking pot in front of her two daughters ages 7 and 5.
Ruhland’s friend, 23-year-old Nathan Nattrass, was also arrested.
The girls were put in protective custody.
In November, 2012 she pleaded no contest to one count of child endangerment for endangering the health of a child.
In February, 2018 a judge granted her request to have the case dismissed.
