NASHUA, N.H. (AP) -- A New Hampshire woman has pleaded guilty to reckless conduct after her 7-month-old son was poisoned by a powerful painkiller.
WMUR reports (http://bit.ly/1tCYSkP ) that Kristine Davis of Hollis received a suspended sentence of 1 to 3 years.
Prosecutors say the fentanyl patch accidentally transferred from Davis' body to her son, Izik, in July 2011. Hillsborough County Attorney Patricia LaFrance said did not believe Davis intended to hurt her child.
Davis told the court she wants to help raise awareness about the dangers of painkiller patches. Davis declined comment as she left court.
Doctors say fentanyl is more potent than morphine. The federal Food and Drug Administration reports that 30 children have died in the past 10 years through accidental transfer or contact with painkiller patches.
