LONG BEACH, Miss. (WPMI) — According to the Sun-herald, when former Long Beach Mississippi police officer Cassie Barker admitted this week to causing the hot-car death of her 3-year-old daughter, she did not mention she was pregnant with her second child.
Her attorney says she plans to put the baby up for adoption.
Barker, a 29-year-old ex-Mississippi police officer, pleaded guilty to manslaughter admitting she had sex while her child was dying of heatstroke in the back of her patrol car.
The state recommended a 20-year sentence.
