Mom Pleads Guilty To Forcing Beer On Children

BRIDGEPORT, Conn. (AP) – A Connecticut mother has pleaded guilty to charges that she forced her 4-year-old son to drink beer and gave her 10-month-old daughter beer and cocaine.

The Connecticut Post reports Juliette Dunn, of Bridgeport, pleaded guilty Wednesday to risk of injury to a child under the Alford Doctrine, where the defendant doesn’t agree to the facts but agrees the state has enough evidence to win a conviction.

A companion, 33-year-old Lisa Jefferson, pleaded guilty to the same charges.

Police say officers were waved down in June by a neighbor who complained that a woman was feeding children beer at a playground.

The children were turned over to the Department of Children and Families after 29-year-old Dunn’s arrest. Custody hasn’t been decided.

It’s unknown if either woman has a lawyer.
