Ohio mom sentenced for burglaries with kids in car
CINCINNATI — An Ohio woman who authorities say burglarized homes while her children waited in her car and used her 5-year-old son to help with break-ins has been sentenced to four years in prison.
A Hamilton County Common Pleas judge sentenced 26-year-old Samantha Brewer on Tuesday in Cincinnati, saying she might be allowed early release for drug rehabilitation.
Brewer pleaded guilty Tuesday to attempted burglary. She pleaded guilty in June to burglary, attempted burglary and child endangering.
Brewer blames the burglaries this spring in Harrison on an addiction to pain medication. She was pregnant at the time of the burglaries and gave birth to a girl while in jail in June.
Authorities say Brewer stole jewelry and other items that could be pawned easily.
