Comments Off on York mother pleads no contest to abuse after police found her high on Methamphetamine and her young children exposed to the drug

YORK – A 21-year-old York woman has pleaded no contest to two counts of child abuse after police found her high on methamphetamine and her young children exposed to the drug.

Syerrah Jordan appeared in York County District Court this week, before Judge Patrick Mullen.

According to York County Attorney Candace Dick, the York Police Department received a 911 call in the middle of the night, last July.

“They couldn’t determine Ms. Jordan’s purpose for the call,” Dick said, “but they could hear a baby in the background. They went to the location of where the call was made and spoke with her. She told them she had used meth earlier and she was out of sorts. She couldn’t understand what was going on around her.”

Dick said Jordan’s 1-month-old baby and two-year-old child were inside the house with her, as well as her 22-year-old boyfriend who the prosecution says also admitted to police that he had been using meth.

“Lab results showed that both children tested positive for methamphetamine,” Dick said.

The child abuse charges are Class 1 misdemeanors that carry a possible maximum sentence of one year in jail.

Judge Mullen set sentencing for May 20.
