TUSCUMBIA, AL (WAFF) -
Friday, the Supreme Court of Alabama handed down a ruling that includes unborn children in the chemical endangerment statute.
This ruling comes as a result of an appeal filed by Amanda Helaine Borden Kimbrough of Colbert County.
Kimbrough pleaded guilty to child endangerment after her son Timmy died 19 minutes after birth. Kimbrough went into labor at 25 weeks.
A medical examiner with the Alabama Department of Forensic Sciences determined Timmy died from "accute methamphetamine intoxication". Kimbrough later admitted to smoking meth three days before the child was born.
Kimbrough pleaded guilty to chemical endangerment of a child, but later appealed. She argued that the chemical endangerment statute did not extend to unborn children.
The Alabama Criminal Court of Appeals ruled that Kimbrough's guilty plea should stand.
Kimbrough then took the case to the Supreme Court of Alabama.
The Court ruled that the Court of Criminal Appeals made the right call.
The ruling states, "The decision of this Court today is in keeping with the widespread legal recognition that unborn children are persons with rights that should be protected by law."
Kimbrough is in Tutwiler Women's Prison. Her release date is in 2015.
