A woman from Cooper County who was accused of subjecting her children to narcotics has received her sentence.
Amber Roth, a resident of Boonville, pleaded guilty in February to charges of possessing a controlled substance and endangering the welfare of a child. As part of her plea agreement, four additional charges against her were dropped. On Monday, Roth was sentenced to five years of supervised probation for both offenses.
Meanwhile, James Pipes, Roth’s live-in boyfriend, is still awaiting his trial. He faces charges of possessing a controlled substance, manufacturing a controlled substance, maintaining a public nuisance, and three counts of endangering the welfare of a child. Roth’s next court appearance is scheduled for July.
During a search conducted by deputies at the couple’s residence last summer, narcotics, drug paraphernalia, firearms, and materials associated with methamphetamine production were discovered. Investigators found evidence that the children residing in the home were exposed to narcotics and were living in an environment infested with bugs.
