Lawrence, MA (The Weekly Vice) - Jennifer Goguen, a 25-year-old Lawrence woman, was jailed Saturday after police found her toddler child left alone on a feeding tube among a house full of partying teenagers.
According to police, deputies were called to an apartment because of loud partying and suspicions that someone had a gun.
Officers arrived on scene to discover over a dozen underage teenagers drinking alcohol, smoking marijuana, and abusing cocaine in a dirty, deplorable apartment that had no heat.
Inside a cold room in the residence, officers found a 2-year-old toddler who had been placed on a feeding tube because of a failed kidney.
Investigators say Goguen, who is the boy's mother, showed up at the apartment shortly after police arrived. She stated that her brother, 17-year-old Jacob Ramos was supposed to be watching her son while she ran to her mother's, and that the place was clean when she left.
Goguen was booked into jail and charged with child endangerment and providing alcohol to minors.
Ramos and the other teens were booked into jail and charged with illegal possession of alcohol. Ramos was also charged with child endangerment.
The child is in the care of an aunt.
