BUTTE FALLS, Ore. – The Jackson County Sheriff’s office said a Butte Falls mom was arrested after her child overdosed on fentanyl.

30-year-old Desiree Maria Brown was charged with three counts of first-degree criminal mistreatment, four counts of reckless endangering, and two counts of second-degree child neglect.

The incident reportedly happened on September 15 at a home in the 800 block of Derby Road in Butte Falls.
