The Fort Campbell woman accused of dropping her child on the side of the Interstate while high on synethic drugs has pled guilty.
30-year old Cynthia Palmer entered guilty pleas Monday to charges of wanton endangerment, assault, public intoxication, DUI and possession of drug paraphernalia. She had been scheduled to go on trial next month.
Police say Palmer had been snorting a methamphetamine-like substance sold as "bath salts" last February. She was driving through Marshall County when she stopped and dropped her 2-year-old son in the middle of Interstate 24. Palmer then began walking down the road. The 2-year-old suffered a head injury.
As part of a plea deal, Cynthia Palmer will serve 10 years in prison.
