    A Salt Lake City mother faces child endangerment charges after police found drugs in her 19-month-old daughter's system.

    Police say officers discovered the child alone at a home on Aug. 2. Officers say the toddler's breath smelled strongly of alcohol and that she was covered in feces.

    Drug tests later revealed the girl had cocaine and amphetamines in her system.

    Police arrested the toddler's mother, 20-year-old Sara Jerz, after she admitted to leaving her alone at the home. She was charged with third-degree felony child endangerment.

    If convicted, Jerz could face prison time.

    My God, poor baby! Who in heavens name leaves a 19 month old home alone? As for who is responsible for the drugs and alcohol in her system, sounds like someone was hoping to knock her out while they were gone! Please tell me this child will never go back to this woman!

    Isn't it nice that she could face jail time? You would think this would be a given. Unfortunately, it is not. Grrrr.

    I just pulled up the Sara Jerz (the "mother") inmate record..and she's being charged with a LOT..

    - Endangerment of a child.
    - Minor in possession of alcohol.
    - Unlawful purchase, possession, consumption of alcohol by a minor.
    - Theft.
    - Failure to appear.
    - Possession of a controlled substance.

    All of that brings her total bail to just under $25,500.

    Sarah Jerz / Sarah Fawn Jerz was found guilty in 2010 of child abuse/ neglect and attempted possession or use of a controlled substance; and pleaded no contest to two counts of child endangerment.

    I don't know what her sentence was but it can't have been much as she was in trouble again in 2013, and was charged with domestic assault, domestic violence in front of a child, failure to attend, public intoxication, shoplifting and drug use.
