A lawyer on Friday delivered a strong message for the mother accused of driving high on heroin with her two children in the car.
“While certainly, most people have sympathy for people who use heroin or are addicted to heroin, I think that sympathy stops when the people that shoot heroin get in the car and drive somewhere,” the Hamilton County prosecuting attorney told Ashley Davis.
Davis, 25, flipped her vehicle on Interstate 71 North near Silverton Thursday night. Her two young children were inside the car and were not hurt, police said.
The prosecutor requested a high bond for Davis, saying she endangered so many lives by driving high on heroin.
“No respect or regard for other people, no respect or regard for your own children and certainly no respect or regard for your own life,” the prosecuting attorney told a judge in court.
The children are reportedly in the care of their grandparents in Indiana.
Davis, of Vevay, Indiana, is charged with drug possession and endangering children.
