MIDDLETOWN, Ga. (CBS Atlanta) – Middletown police arrested 23-year-old Hollie Sentendy for allegedly smoking marijuana with and giving pills to her boyfriend’s 11-year-old daughter.
According to police reports obtained by the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, the 11-year-old girl was “crying and upset” when she told officers Sentendy gave her yellow pills and a “rolled up green substance and had her smoke it with her.”
“They were sharing the marijuana, so she didn’t smoke the entire joint,” Lt. Scott Reeve of the Middletown Police Department, told the newspaper. “I’m not sure how much of it she did smoke.”
Police records show that Sentendy has been arrested before. She pleaded guilty to attempted drug abuse methamphetamine and attempted drug abuse Xanax back in September.
“It’s really disturbing for an 11-year-old to be introduced to drugs by someone she’s supposed to trust and have faith in,” Reeve added. “We don’t want children to grow up in this type of environment where they’re introduced to drugs at such a young age by someone that’s a cargiver.”
Police are currently conducting a further investigation on the incident.
“We are still looking into everything that occurred that day as far as usage of marijuana,” Reeve said.
Sentendy has been charged with corrupting another with drugs, a fourth-degree felony, and child endangering, a first-degree misdemeanor. She is scheduled to appear in court on July 23.
