St. Peters woman accused of giving minor vodka sentenced

ST. PETERS, Mo. (AP) – A St. Peters woman has received a suspended sentence after authorities say her daughter’s 13-year-old friend ended up in the hospital after consuming alcohol the woman provided.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch (http://bit.ly/1BIGpL6 ) reports 36-year-old Latasha Ann Gorman was sentenced Monday. She had pleaded no-contest to one felony count of child endangerment. Gorman was given five years of probation and 17 special conditions such as not entering a bar and not having contact with minors under 18 without supervision.

According to prosecutors, Gorman gave her 14-year-old daughter and her friend a bottle of vodka after a picnic in September 2013. The 13-year-old became ill and had to be taken to a hospital. Prosecutors said her blood-alcohol content was .232, nearly three times the limit for an adult to legally drive.

The girl has since recovered.
