EAST LIVERPOOL, Ohio (AP) — A woman photographed with her boyfriend slumped in a vehicle after overdosing on heroin as her 4-year-old grandson sat in the backseat has pleaded no contest to a child endangering charge in southeast Ohio.
A judge in East Liverpool on Thursday sentenced 50-year-old Rhonda Pasek to 180 days in jail. The boyfriend received 360 days in jail last week after pleading no contest to child endangering and operating a vehicle under the influence.
Photos taken by East Liverpool police of Pasek and 47-year-old James Acord went viral last week after being posted on Facebook. Pasek and Acord had to be revived with the heroin antidote Narcan.
A Columbiana County Juvenile Court judge has granted custody of the boy to relatives in South Carolina.
Pasek’s attorney wasn’t immediately available for comment.
