Vermont woman accused of biting 12-day-old baby in Lebanon
A Grafton County Superior Court grand jury has indicted Sarah Haines, 25, on a charge of second-degree assault.
Asked about the circumstances of the alleged attack or the reason, Roberts replied, “We never really got a strong answer. It could be drugs or it could be mental health.”
“That’s used a lot to kick opiate addiction,” Roberts said of the drug.
Lebanon police arrested Haines Jan. 20 and she was being held at the time on $20,000 cash bail at the Grafton County jail in North Haverhill.
Second-degree assault is a Class B felony. The possession of a narcotic/controlled drug charge against Haines is listed as a “special felony” with the potential for a penalty greater than a Class A felony term of 7½ to 15 years in prison.
