LA CROSSE, Wis. — Prosecutors have charged a La Crosse woman with after her 10-month-old son ingested heroin. The La Crosse Tribune reports 32-year-old Jessica Borger was charged Thursday with child neglect causing great bodily harm and bail jumping for allegedly violating a no-contact order with the child. According to a criminal complaint, first responders were called to a residence on Dec. 22 on a report of a infant choking. They gave the child Narcan, a drug that reverses opioid overdoses, and took him to a hospital. Borger said a guest used heroin and probably left some behind where the child could consume it. Online court records didn’t list an attorney for Borger.
