Mom must get education, job after daughter's deathJune 25, 2019
By The Associated Press
GARY — A northwestern Indiana woman who pleaded guilty to a reduced neglect charge stemming from her 2-year-old daughter's shooting death has been ordered to take parenting classes, get an education, stay off drugs and find a job.
The (Northwest Indiana) Times reports 22-year-old Dashana Fowler of Gary was sentenced Monday to three years in a Community Transition Court for the Sept. 4 death of Jayla Miller.
Fowler apologized, saying she wanted to enter the problem-solving court for her surviving children.
Lake Criminal Court Judge Salvador Vasquez says he'll give Fowler a "ticket to prison" if she doesn't comply with the program's requirements.
Documents say Fowler's son told investigators his sister reached under a pillow in a bedroom, grabbed a handgun and shot herself. Crack cocaine also was found in the room.
