AUSTIN, Texas (AP) - A Central Texas woman has been sentenced to two years in prison for endangering her 6-year-old child by lacing her school lunch with the powerful hallucinogen PCP.
The Austin American-Statesman reports (http://bit.ly/11baPk1 ) 35-year-old Torina Ann Gutierrez was sentenced Wednesday for child endangerment. She had agreed to a plea deal in March. Prosecutors agreed to waive another charge of criminal negligence.
An affidavit filed last June in Travis County says the girl told investigators the sandwich she had taken to school tasted like "fireworks." The girl said she could hear "banging in her head."
Both Gutierrez and the girl later tested positive for PCP. The girl referred to the substance as angel dust and said she had seen it in her home.
She was later placed with a family member.
