A former day care owner in Moorhead has pleaded guilty to neglect and child endangerment after police found her drunk at her home.
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.
A Moorhead woman is accused of being drunk while caring for children at a day care she operates in her home. Fifty-four-year-old Jayne Cote is charged with four gross misdemeanor counts of neglect or endangerment of a child. Clay County Attorney Brian Melton says when police performed a welfare check at the day care on Oct. 2, Cote’s blood-alcohol level was 0.18 percent. That’s more than twice Minnesota’s legal limit for driving of 0.08 percent.
