LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) -

A Huntington woman pleaded guilty to putting meth in her coffee shortly before she gave birth to her child, accepting a five-year probation sentence.

Amanda McAdams, 26, pleaded guilty to endangering a child. As a part of the terms, she agreed to complete her drug rehabilitation program.

The Angelina County Sheriff's Office started looking into the case after a hair follicle test done on McAdams's baby came back positive for meth on March 6.

According to an arrest warrant, McAdams tested positive for meth on Jan. 11. She tested positive again on March 6, as did the child's father, Joseph Broussard, 42.

McAdams admitted that she thought the drug testing for the Child Protective Services case was over, so she and Broussard admitted to snorting meth a couple of days before the March tests. Both of them were charged with state-jail child endangerment.

McAdams also admitted to putting meth in her coffee just a couple days before giving birth because she was "tired and wore out."

Broussard pleaded guilty last week and also accepted a five-year probation sentence.
