Woman Endangered Baby While So Intoxicated She Couldn’t Walk Or Change Child’s Nappy

A woman found with a baby while so intoxicated she couldn’t even walk safely faces jail.

 Reckless Lisa Robertson, 29, was unable to change the tot’s nappy during the drug or alcohol- fuelled haze

Robertson admitted failing to provide adequate care due to her “levels of intoxication” at Ayr Sheriff Court last week.

 She had been charged with allowing the infant to have a lighter in a bed but that accusation was dropped by prosecutors.

A trial date had been set for Friday but Robertson entered a last-minute plea. 

Sheriff Desmond Leslie refused to grant her bail when she appeared in the dock – and she was led away in handcuffs.

 He ordered a background report to be prepared on Robertson, who also faces shoplifting charges.

 Robertson, of Ayr, pled guilty to wilfully exposing the child to behaviour that was likely to cause her unnecessary suffering or injury to health on May 21 last year.

 She admitted being unable to walk in a safe manner while pushing the baby girl in a pram.

 And she confessed to being “physically unable to change her nappy” while in a precarious position on a bed.

 She will learn her fate later his month.

Fiona Coughtrie, 39, was charged with the same offence, which she denied.

 Her not guilty plea was accepted by the prosecutor.
