GREAT FALLS — A judge has given a Great Falls man a deferred prison sentence of three years after he admitted that he and his wife did not take their 1-year-old daughter to the hospital when she drank methamphetamine-laced orange juice.

The Great Falls Tribune reports that the deferred sentence handed down Wednesday by District Judge Julie Macek was recommended as part of a plea agreement in which Lee Edwin Haas pleaded guilty to criminal endangerment.

He and Angela Haas were arrested in June 2011 after social workers told police the infant had tested positive for methamphetamine.

Court documents say Angela Haas told police she was afraid her children would be taken away if she went to the emergency room.
