MOORHEAD, Minn. (AP) — A Moorhead woman has reached a plea deal over charges that she was drunk while caring for children at her home day care.

A KFGO-AM report Wednesday says Jayne Cote agreed to plead guilty to child neglect or endangerment.

Defense attorney Jade Rosenfeldt says in return, prosecutors will recommend a suspended jail sentence. That means she’d only serve the time if she violates terms of probation.

Prosecutors say police arrived at her day care on Oct. 2 and found her blood-alcohol level was 0.18 percent. That’s more than twice the legal limit for driving.

Rosenfeldt says her client is looking forward to rebuilding her life. He says she doesn’t plan to go back into child care.

A judge will have to approve the plea agreement.
