LIVINGSTON, TX (KTRE) -

A 37-year-old Livingston man who was arrested after his baby tested positive for meth back in March accepted a plea bargain deal of one year in a state-jail prison Thursday.

Jason Elliott Reeves pleaded guilty to a felony child endangerment charge as part of the plea bargain deal.

According to an arrest affidavit, deputies spoke to Jason Elliott Reeves, 36, on Feb. 10 and asked him about him dealing meth from his home. Jason Reeves said he did have meth at his home and went to retrieve it from where he thought it was but could not find it, according to the affidavit.

According to the affidavit, Jason Reeves asked Jessy Erin Reeves, his 25-year-old wife, where the meth was and she told him she put them in a cabinet outside the bedroom.

According to the affidavit, Jason Reeves admitted to using meth with Jessy Reeves.

The couple's baby, who is less than a year old, tested positive for meth.

When Jason Reeves was arrested and booked into the Polk County Jail on Feb.  16, he was originally charged with aggravated assault, two counts of delivery of a controlled substance, unauthorized use of a motor vehicle and endangering a child.

Jessy Reeves was booked into the jail on March 17 on charges of endangering a child, possession of a controlled substance and a probation violation.

Back in July, Jessy Reeves pleaded guilty to endangering a child and possession of a controlled substance. She was sentenced to serve two six-month sentences in a state-jail prison concurrently, or at the same time.
