MADISONVILLE, OH (FOX19) - A Madisonville mother is facing charges after police say she gave marijuana to her three children.

Valerie Cecil, 25, is charged with three counts of corrupting another with drugs.

According to the arrest report, Cecil gave marijuana to her children, ages 7, 4, and 1, in September, but she was just arrested on Wednesday.

Cecil was arraigned on Thursday morning. She is out of jail on her own recognizance and any contact she has with her children must be supervised by Hamilton County Job and Family Services.

This is the second case Hamilton County has seen in recent months involving a mother giving her child marijuana. Last month, police arrested a Springfield Township mother for teaching her 2-year-old daughter how to smoke pot and recording video of it on her cell phone.
