A woman who gave a baby the heroin substitute methadone has been jailed for three years.
Susan Taylor, 29, tried to calm the 10-week-old boy by rubbing his dummy in a measuring cup used for the drug. She was sentenced at the High Court in Edinburgh on September 11 last year but the judge, Lord Bannatyne, banned reporting of the case at the time because her partner, Lynn Cowan, also faced court in connection with the child.
Cowan, 28, has been jailed for 10 months at Edinburgh Sheriff Court after she admitted failing to tell medics the boy had been given methadone. The High Court in Edinburgh heard the child, who cannot be named for legal reasons, almost died.
