A suburban Philadelphia woman repeatedly injected her 14-year-old daughter and another teen with heroin, even tying a string around their arms to isolate their veins, prosecutors said.
The Chester County district attorney’s office alleged that Jessica Lynn Riffey, 34, of West Caln Township, supplied the 14-year-old girl and a 16-year-old boy with heroin and injected them multiple times last month.
Riffey was charged with corruption of minors, endangering the welfare of children and drug delivery. She was jailed in lieu of $50,000 pending a preliminary hearing Friday. Online court records didn’t list a lawyer who could comment on the charges and a message left at a number listed in her name wasn’t immediately returned Monday.
Prosecutors also allege that Riffey’s boyfriend supplied heroin for the teens to snort. He has been charged separately with drug dealing and other offenses.
