Mom Accused Of Injecting Her Three Kids With Heroin To Make Them Go To Sleep
A Washington mother is facing charges after she allegedly injected heroin into her three children, calling it “sleep juice” and “feel good medicine.”
KIRO reports Ashlee Hutt, 24, is facing charges after someone contacted Child Protective Services to say they saw her injecting her children — ages 2, 4, and 6 — with heroin.
“Some of the statements they made were very disturbing about how they would get sleeping juice to go to sleep and it was injected into them by needle,” said Ed Troyer, spokesperson for the Pierce County Sheriff’s Office.
The 6-year-old son also said “his mom and dad give him and his sisters the ‘feel good medicine,'” that “he described as a white powder which was mixed with water,” and his parents “used a needle to inject the ‘feel good medicine’ into him and his sisters,” according to an affidavit.
The children’s father, 25-year-old Leroy McIver was taken into custody on a bench warrant in September and both remain in jail.
Both Hutt and McIver pleaded not guilty to three counts of second-degree child assault, child endangerment and delivery of a controlled substance to a person under 18.
All three of the children are now in foster care.
