A 26-year-old Eau Claire woman is accused of exposing her children to methamphetamine and other drugs.

Justina R. Schummer, 2628 Seventh St., has been charged in Eau Claire County Court with two misdemeanor counts of child neglect.

According to the criminal complaint:

On Dec. 1, the Eau Claire County Child Protection Services received a report regarding the welfare of Schummer’s 1- and 3-year-old children. The reporter indicated Schummer had a lengthy history of drug abuse, and she reportedly was using heroin and methamphetamine.

Hair follicle tests on both children tested positive for drugs, including methamphetamine.

Schummer told a detective on Jan. 3 that she was using heroin daily and she used marijuana regularly. She also said there were times her former boyfriend and several others would use drugs in the basement of her home while her children were upstairs sleeping.
