They found Keesling unconscious and hanging off a reclining chair. Keesling’s infant son was strapped in a car seat on the floor of the home with what later turned out to be a crushed codeine pill about one foot away from him.
The child, who has Down Syndrome, was hungry and in need of a diaper change. After numerous attempts to wake Keesling, she came-to when deputies shook her.
Keesling is charged with Child Neglect, Possession of a Controlled Substance, Possession of Drug Paraphernalia and Obstruction. Keesling has an extensive criminal history of drug arrests, DUI and prescription fraud. The child is now in DCF custody.
