RICHMOND, Mo. – A Missouri mother is facing felony charges after a photo of her allegedly smoking meth next to her baby ended up on Facebook.
The Facebook post, which has since been deleted, was captioned:
"Please help my friend Ashley Lewis and I stop using meth. We can't even stop with a baby around. We need help!"
The photo appears to show Lewis smoking the drug from a glass pipe with her 6-month-old daughter lying on the couch right next to her.
After discovering the photo, officers located a hotel where Lewis was living and conducted a search Friday night, finding a total of eight glass smoking pipes, among other drug paraphernalia, WDAF reports.
If convicted of the charges, Lewis could face up to 15 years in prison.
Her 6-month-old daughter is in protective custody.
