WISCONSIN RAPIDS, Wis. (WSAU) - The Stratford woman found guilty of telling doctors fake symptoms for her children to acquire prescription drugs will have to spend some time in jail.
32-year-old Susan C. Moore was sentenced Friday by Judge Nicholas Brazeau to ten days to be served within the next 60 days. She will also have to serve two years probation, pay a $100 dollar fine and court costs. She will also have to follow Wood and Marathon County guidelines to see her children and eventually regain custody.
Moore was charged with child abuse intentionally causing harm, two counts of neglecting a child, and obstructing an officer. The judge withheld sentence on all but one child abuse charge, but she could be punished if she fails to comply with probation guidelines.
Moore had told doctors at St. Joseph’s Hospital in Marshfield that her two year old was having seizures. Then, she did the same with her four-year-old child. Medical tests on the children showed no signs of medical problems. Moore was doing this to illegally obtain the drug Diazepam for herself.
