Chippewa County mother sentenced for exposing baby to drugs

Sally Lis

Chippewa County (WQOW) - A mother accused of exposing her baby to drugs agreed to a plea deal with prosecutors Tuesday. 

Sally Lis faced multiple charges in Chippewa County Court.

In 2017, police say a hair sample from her then-2-month-old baby tested positive for a variety of drugs including amphetamines and heroin.

They say the only way the baby would be exposed to those drugs is direct ingestion. 

Tuesday, Lis pleaded no contest to child neglect as well as two drug possession charges.

Judge Steven Cray sentenced her to four years of probation and the time she has already served behind bars.

She is also ordered to maintain absolute sobriety and must make a reasonable effort to accomplish goals and recommendations of chips case.
