CURSORY:

  • A 17 year old girl has been charged with child abuse after she allegedly forced a toddler to smoke cannabis.
  • The babysitter who recorded the video showed her giving the lit joint to the one year old girl before inhaling it herself.
  • She was arrested after the video was discovered.


A 17-year-old babysitter identified as Naledi Roberts has been charged with child abuse after allegedly forcing a toddler to inhale cannabis from a lit joint.

In the video she recorded, Roberts was seen placing the lit joint in the one-year-old girl’s mouth who inhaled as the embers at the end of the cigarette glowed brighter.

Daily Mail reported that Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office arrested Roberts on Friday, March 24, after detectives discovered the footage she had recorded.

Upon being questioned, Roberts admitted to smoking marijuana near the child, who she was babysitting for her 16-year-old friend.

However, after she was confronted with the footage, Roberts went on to admit she had put the joint into the child’s mouth.

Roberts was then arrested by officers and charged with one count of felony child abuse.

She was taken to the Pinellas Juvenile Assessment Centre. She has since refused to explain why she put the drug into the child’s mouth.

Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman told the Daily Mail that the child did not appear to have suffered from any long-lasting injuries from the incident.
