A suburban Philadelphia woman accused of helping to inject her daughter and another teenager with heroin has been sentenced to 4 to 10 years in prison.
The Daily Local News of West Chester reports that 34-year-old Jessica Lynn Riffey pleaded guilty in Chester County to charges of child endangerment, delivery of heroin and conspiracy.
Authorities alleged that the West Caln Township resident supplied the 14-year-old girl and a 16-year-old boy with heroin and injected them multiple times last fall. District Attorney Thomas Hogan said the family lived in a trailer in which numerous people were using heroin.
