BANGOR, Maine (AP) — A woman who allegedly used her own Narcan to revive her 2-year-old daughter who got into her drugs is facing charges.
The woman was charged with reckless conduct domestic violence with a dangerous weapon and endangering the welfare of a child, the Bangor Daily News reported. She was scheduled to make an initial court appearance on Friday.
An attorney could not be reached for her.
Prosecutors will test Maine’s Good Samaritan law, which provides immunity to people who report an overdose or provide medical assistance, said District Attorney Christopher Almy,
The law was recently expanded, but will not take effect for several months.
If convicted, the woman faces up to a year in prison and a fine of up to $2,000 on each count.
