Pregnant Washington woman accused of Drug Abuse

A pregnant woman from Washington, who was under arrest for investigation of felony mistreatment and abandonment, has admitted to police she has been using meth. KIRO-TV reports that a judge has set bail at $100,000 for Amanda Foley and Mark Dorson. Their three children are now in the custody of Child Protective Services.

The parents appeared in court on Wednesday. According to Lake Stevens police, the children were found without food in a cold, filthy house. It is still unclear that how long the children had been left unattended before police removed them from their house.

The three children included a 7-year-old girl, a 3-year-old boy and an 11-month-old boy. As per police, they were found surrounded by feces and garbage. Foley started crying when a judge told her to have no contact with her kids.

"She should be crying. She should feel bad. How can you be a parent and treat your kids that way, and call your daughter once every three months. I have five kids; they're my life", said Becky Hensley, the stepmother of Foley's oldest daughter, who didn't live in the same home with her siblings.

As per court documents, when police entered the home, they were overwhelmed by the strong smell of ammonia. The 11-month-old baby was having a temperature of 94.1 degrees and was hypothermic and dehydrated and was in the 2% range for his body weight. The children were taken to the hospital for examining their health. One of them was treated for hypothermia and dehydration.

As per police, preliminary investigations show a history of CPS complaints at the residence. According to Shellie Cooper, who said she called CPS 18 months ago, the kids weren't being fed and were locked in their rooms.
