Meth-Using Mom Gets Five Years In Death Of Five Year Old

Posted 2 years ago

By Associated Press

Megan AyersA central Missouri woman was sentenced to five years in prison after her infant son died while she was using methamphetamine.

Thirty-year-old Megan Ayers admitted that she had used methamphetamine and didn’t check on her son for 12 hours before he died in his playpen at a Holts Summit home in June 2012.

She was sentenced Wednesday to three five-year terms, to run concurrently. But the judge ruled that if Ayers successfully completes a drug treatment program, she could serve the rest of her sentence on probation.

Murder charges weren’t filed because the exact cause of the boy’s death couldn’t be determined.

Ayers’ boyfriend, 23-year-old Bryan Sorter, is awaiting a Feb. 6 trial for endangering the welfare of a child and drug charges.

    It is a sad state of affairs when someone can steal 85,000 dollars and get a longer sentence than someone who murders a child. It’s time our laws are changed regarding child murderers and molesters.

      I totally agree with both of you. I don’t understand how this system works. You kill or molest a child = slap on the wrist, father can’t pay child support=4years in DOC. I believe someone that hurts a child needs to be put to death. We have to protect the childern. The justice system is ran by idiots!!!!!
