38-year-old Brandi Baumgardner of Beaver Springs, Pa., has been accused of injecting her daughter with heroin some 200 times and turning her into a drug addict between 2007 and 2011. The girl, now 16, told Pennsylvania State Police that she began smoking weed with her mother at the age of 12. By 14, she was dabbling in crack and heroin, all thanks to mom.
She added that her mother injected her with heroin because she was too "dope sick" to do it herself, and that her mom made her fake sickness to get prescription pills from hospitals. When confronted by police, Baumgardner admitted to having a drug problem that she forced upon her daughter, but said she only injected her with heroin twice.
Worse, the girl also told cops that she bartered drugs from 21-year-old Robert Hannick for sex. Baumgardner has been charged with endangering the welfare of a child and corruption of a minor. Hannick has been charged with statutory sexual assault, aggravated indecent assault and corruption of a minor as well.
