DAYTON — Both parents of a 10-month-old child revived by Narcan have pleaded guilty.
Carmen Lovely, 27, the infant’s mother, was convicted today of felony child endangering. Andrew Reboulet, 30, the child’s father, was sentenced today for the same crime, according to a release from the Montgomery County Prosecutor’s Office.
Dayton police and medics responded the night of July 15, 2017, to a report of an unresponsive 10-month-old at the 200 block of Billwood Road in Dayton.
Medics reported signs of opioid overdose and gave the infant Narcan, an overdose reversal drug. The child recovered, but the baby and both parents were found to have fentanyl in their systems, prosecutors said.
Attorneys for Reboulet filed a motion today to withdraw his guilty plea, which they said was entered Feb. 26 with the understanding Montgomery County prosecutors would not demand a prison sentence. According to the motion, a new prosecutor who had never made an appearance in the case filed a sentencing memorandum on Sunday that demanded that Reboulet be sentenced to prison, contrary to the pre-sentence agreement.
However, prosecutors said that Reboulet was sentenced today. He was ordered to intensive community control sanctions and will be sent to the MonDay Program, a prison alternative.
Lovely will be sentenced April 9.
