The Sarasota County Sheriff’s Office has arrested Krista Mosley, DOB 4/9/86, 2238 Colson Avenue, Sarasota, for Child Neglect following an investigation involving her injured six month old daughter.
Deputies were called to Sarasota Memorial Hospital October 27 after the baby was brought in with cuts to her face and head. That day, detectives arrested 25-year-old Christopher Rounds for Aggravated Child Abuse after Mosley and another witness said he was under the influence of K2 and alcohol and the only person awake when the child was injured.
When speaking with detectives, Mosley admitted taking prescribed medication and drinking alcohol before falling asleep the night the baby was injured. A court-ordered urinalysis on October 28 showed Mosley was positive for amphetamines, cocaine and benzodiazepines. Detectives obtained a warrant charging Mosley with Child Neglect and she was taken into custody today in Lee County.
The baby has been released from the hospital and is in the custody of relatives.
