She was charged with it, not found guilty, she hasn't even had a trial yet, geez, you wouldn't pass judgement on anyone would you!!

I'm confused, how are they linking her to the death? I know she was in possession of a lot of controlled substances but how does that correlate with the infant's death?

The child was 9 days old. He would not have the ability to crawl, that is why I'm confused! Was she breastfeeding?

The baby died last Janurary at 9 days old. The mother had been using drugs while she was pregnant with the child, thus my opinion is she either was on something really bad that stayed in the child's system a long time or was breastfeeding. Or even possibly dosing the child herself to avoid withdrawl symptoms! I think the people of this community need to realize that she is not the only pregnant woman to use drugs while pregnant, and this only goes to show that if this were to happen, this is what can be expected of our local police & legal system. However I do believe she should face some sort of charges, but felony homicide, i just don't know! She has 2 other children and i wonder if anyone is even thinking about those two! We need not pass judgement so quick, especially not knowing the entire story, she does deserve a fair trial, but I dont' feel like this county will give her one!!

The addict needs to be sterilized to prevent further genetic contamination of the community gene pool. She got what she asked and settled for. No pity here.

I agree with you on not allowing them to have more children if they are on drugs, but I don't agree on passing judgement just because someone has been charged, besides the baby died of crib death and I don't see how they can charge her with homicide, unless she was breastfeeding and on drugs, like someone posted earlier.
I'm sure more facts will surface, so lets not pass judgement until we know more or she is found guilty!!

Why is everyone so quick to say "don't judge me" or "don't pass judgement?" I won't have the final say, and I'm not a judge. However, we'd all better hope we have and use good judgement in our own lives, otherwise, we end up making crap decisions like Brandi here.

She will be judged soon enough. I'm just offering an opinion.

The best thing that can happen in cases like this would be to refuse to discharge an infant into the care of their parents if they are drug abusers. I'm talking from the get-go after the birth! You can't tell me that a woman can deliver a child and her physician won't know she has been using illegal drugs. They do so many blood tests it would show up somewhere wouldn't it? Methadone or what have you totally should be a flag that the person is NOT capable of making life choices for another human being. I'd even turn them away from an animal shelter.

I knew that from the posts about the death of the infant. What I don't understand is the number of responses people posted that knew she was on illegal drugs. Hello? How could she be released from the maternity ward with a newborn baby??? I thought it was policy to question the living conditions of any patient with a newborn and involve child protective services.

from the Richlands Police Dept: The cause of the infant's death was attributed to the use and involvement by the victim's mother BRANDI NICOLE CASE in criminal activity.

obviously this means she was abusing the drugs while pregnant and or raising the child
