Bismarck mom accused in felony charge of letting daughter drink herself unconscious

BISMARCK — A Bismarck woman is facing charges for allegedly allowing her 15-year-old daughter drink to the point of unconsciousness.

Thirty-three-year-old Janelle Mae Guy has been charged with felony child abuse or neglect and a misdemeanor count of contributing to the delinquency of minors.

According to an affidavit filed by Bismarck police, officers were called to an apartment early Sunday and found six people younger than 21 hiding in a bedroom. Guy's daughter was taken to a hospital for treatment after she also was found in a bedroom so intoxicated that she was not responsive.

A judge set Guy's bond at $2,500, prohibited her from using alcohol and prohibited her from having contact with her daughter without approval.
