Child neglect charges were dropped against a grandmother who admitted to smoking marijuana around her 2-year-old grandchild.The grandmother, Brenda Fay Conley, 46, was granted an 11-month, 29-day judicial diversion and must pay $250 plus costs and perform 16 hours public service work on the charge of possession of marijuana. The diversion means her criminal record will be erased once she completes her year on probation.Conley’s probation comes after she contacted police, concerned about the welfare of her grandchild.“She was wanting to keep her daughter’s 2-year-old child because she (the child’s mother) was having drug problems,” said McMinnville Police Lt. Mark Mara, adding he noticed something peculiar about both Conley and her daughter as he spoke with them. “They both had signs of cannabis (marijuana) usage and admitted to smoking marijuana last night in the home with the 2-year-old child present.”After speaking with Mara, Conley went to her bedroom and retrieved a metal container from under the mattress that contained marijuana and marijuana seeds.
