    A Maine couple was indicted last week on charges stemming from their 1-year-old daughter's alleged ingestion of heroin last summer.

    The Kennebec Journal reports 34-year-old Jason Thomas and 23-year-old Katie Robinson were charged with unlawful possession of heroin and endangering the welfare of a child.

    The drug possession charge is a felony and carries a maximum five-year prison sentence. Endangering the welfare of a child is a misdemeanor punishable by at least one year in prison.

    Kennebec County District Attorney Maeghan Maloney says the incident occurred in July 2015. She says the Sidney couple took their daughter to the hospital, where she tested positive for opiates.

    Both Thomas and Robinson have criminal records related to drug offenses in the past.
