(Merrill, Wisconsin) A 19-year-old mother, Kristine Woellner, has been accused of blowing marijuana smoke into her six-month-old child's face.
Woellner faces four charges including child neglect. Reportedly, the offenses occurred on February 23rd and were observed by a witness.
"I smelled the odor, and me and my girlfriend walked toward the bathroom, and we witnessed the mother blowing smoke into the baby's face - marijuana smoke," said Joey Nebbergall, a witness.Woellner was booked and released. A court appearance is scheduled for May 10.
Woellner was allegedly in Nebbergall's apartment through a mutual acquaintance.
"It made me mad because you shouldn't do that to a baby. If that was my kid, I wouldn't blow smoke in my baby's face," he said.
Due to the testimony of Nebbergall, a social worker, and the doctor who examined the baby in the emergency room, Judge Tim Vocke found there was enough evidence to proceed with the case.
