An Onalaska woman accepted a plea bargain deal of five years of deferred adjudication Tuesday for exposing her teenage son to methamphetamine.

Carolyn Bost pleaded guilty to a child endangerment charge in exchange for the deal. Deferred adjudication is very similar to probation.

According to Captain John Maddox with the Onalaska Police Department, OPD officers were dispatched to check on a report of a boy about the age of 13 being locked out of his house on July 23.

Because of the poor living conditions at the house, the officer or officers called Child Protective Services, the affidavit stated. CPS officials did a field test on Bost and her son, and they both tested positive for meth, according to the affidavit. The teenage boy allegedly had more narcotics in his system than his mother did.
