2 North Carolina Women Charged Over Video That Allegedly Shows Them Giving Children a Blunt
Michaela Pearson, 21, and Candice Little, 18, are being held at the Forsyth County Jail.
Two North Carolina women are charged with felony child abuse after allegedly helping three children smoke an apparent marijuana cigarillo, according to authorities.
Michaela Pearson, 21, and Candice Little, 18, are being held at the Forsyth County Jail on three felony counts of child abuse and three counts of contributing to the delinquency of a minor, online records show.
On Thursday, a judge lowered the women's bail from $150,000 to $100,000 each.
They were arrested by Winston-Salem police after the department received numerous complaints about a video, originally posted on Snapchat, that appeared to show them holding a cigarillo to the lips of children ages 2, 3 and 18 months.
At one point in the video, as a little girl takes a drag and begins to cough, one of the women can be heard saying, "Oh yeah, big gasp."
At the time, the women were babysitting the children, according to reports.
The kids were taken to a local hospital and are under observation, the police department said.
