Authorities: Mom used meth while pregnant; Charged with child abuse

JONES COUNTY, Miss. (WHLT) — A 23-year-old accused of using meth while she was pregnant is charged with child abuse.

Tobi Godwin was charged with the crime on Wednesday.

The Jones County Sheriff’s Department said back in October 2015, they received a tip that God was using meth just a few days before her child was born. Officials said they had a delay in action when they tried to gain the medical records. Once the records were secured they were able to get evidence to show that amphetamines and methamphetamines were in the infant’s system at birth.

She was picked up on misdemeanor charges on Monday and charged with felonious child abuse Wednesday.
