Missouri Mom Charged with Smoking Meth with 13-year-old

SPRINGFIELD, Mo. (AP) — A southwest Missouri woman has been charged with two counts of endangering the welfare of a child for smoking methamphetamine with her 13-year-old daughter.

The Springfield News-Leader reports 34-year-old Ann Lampe of Springfield told police she might have smoked meth with her daughter five or six times.

According to court documents, the daughter told police her mother gave her meth more times than she could remember. Prosecutors say Lampe told police she knew it was wrong to give her daughter the drug, but she did it because the girl would throw a fit if she didn’t get what she wanted.

Electronic court records do not indicate whether Lampe, who was arrested Friday, has an attorney. Greene County offices were closed Monday in observance of the Veterans Day holiday.
