Monticello woman overdoses, leaving infant child alone



MONTICELLO – Village police arrested a Monticello woman after they found her unconscious in her apartment last Saturday.  Her seven-month-old child was in the apartment. 
Jessica Simpson, 24, was charged with endangering the welfare of a child, two counts of criminal possession of a controlled substance and criminal possession of a hypodermic instrument.  All charges are misdemeanors.
Responding officers found Simpson unconscious from an apparent drug overdose.

She was subsequently transported to CRMC by Mobile Medic Ambulance for follow-up medical treatment.
Simpson is in the Sullivan County Jail in lieu of $1500 bail.
