Mother Arrested for Allowing Daughter to Live with STD

Tasha “Nortia” Ford, 30, was arrested and charged with felony child neglect on the grounds that she failed to get her 3-year-old daughter treatment for a sexually transmitted disease (STD).

The disease was discovered during a medical examination. The examination took place after the child had been removed from her mother’s home on Oct. 29 due to an unrelated matter.

Allegedly, Ford knew of the disease and did not seek medical attention upon learning of it. The type of STD was not listed. The mother is currently being held without bond and has yet to appear in court.

STDs such as AIDS, herpes and syphilis can be passed from mother to baby at birth. The STDs can lead to pneumonia, eye infections and brain damage.
