(VIDEO) Mom Jailed for Accidentally Feeding Baby Rum


(VIDEO) Mom Jailed for Accidentally Feeding Baby Rum

Iesha Hill's 5-month-old baby is recovering from alcohol poisoning in a hospital near Stockton, CA while she sits in jail waiting to learn her fate. Hill is unable to be with her baby because she was arrested Saturday and charged with child abuse after feeding her baby formula mixed with rum instead of water.

Tressie Piggee, Hill's mother, feels that a second mistake is being made right now; that the baby needs her mother by her side as she recovers. She explained to KTXL Fox40 that the rum-based formula was a terrible accident: Iesha only used rum to mix the formula because it was in a plastic water bottle and she mistakenly assumed it was water.
