Lufkin mom who exposed child to PCP back in custody

LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) -

A Lufkin woman convicted on a child endangerment charge after her child ingested PCP is booked back into the Angelina County Jail after she was allegedly caught with another felon.

Julia Goodwin, 32, has been in jail three times since January 2012 in relation to this charge.

According to Adult Probation Department supervisor Dustin Fore, Goodwin will be sent to an intermediate sanctions facility for 90 days.

Goodwin pleaded guilty to child endangerment in March 2011 and accepted a probation sentence. In January 2012, she failed a drug test and was arrested at drug court.

When Goodwin was first arrested in March 2011, the arrest came after the Lufkin Police Department investigated a child in the emergency room of Memorial Health Systems of East Texas-Lufkin.

At the time, the 1-year-old child was breathing and awake, but not responsive. Hospital staff members performed a drug test and found evidence of PCP in the child's blood.

The child was later transported by helicopter to Texas Children's Hospital in Houston for further treatment.

Doctors and nurses are considered mandatory reporters of child abuse under Texas state law. That means if they believe abuse or neglect has happened or happening they have to report it within 48 hours to law enforcement.

She was arrested again on March 25 on additional terms for violating probation and released on March 27.

"Since she was new to the drug court, the judge warned her of the consequences for any future relationship violations and released her from jail," Fore said.
