Davenport Woman Accused of Taking Child to Drug Deal

DAVENPORT, Iowa (AP) — A Davenport woman is accused of smoking marijuana while driving to a drug deal with her 6-week-old child in the back seat.

The Quad-City Times in Davenport reports that 19-year-old Cassandra L. Davis was charged with possession of a controlled substance and child endangerment.

Davenport police say they spotted Davis smoking a pipe as she drove past an unmarked squad car shortly before 9:30 p.m. on Wednesday. Officers pulled her over and found two baggies of marijuana.

Police say 18-year-old Joshua M. Gosselin of Davenport was sitting in the backseat with 13 grams of marijuana, along with prescription painkillers and other pills.

The child endangerment charge is a felony because the infant was exposed to a controlled substance. Davis faces up to five years in prison if convicted.
