EL PASO, Texas (KTSM) – After only one day of testimony, the mother at the center case dealing with a 5-month-old being fed opioids, has accepted a plea deal.

Sapphire Araujo, the mother of the 5-month-old who she fed crushed up Hydrocodone, was sentenced to a deferred five-year state jail felony, meaning she will serve no time behind bars.

Araujo was initially charged with two counts of Attempted Capital Murder of a Child and was facing life in prison.

Authorities initially said she tried to poison her 5-month-old and 2-year-old children with opioids in 2018.

During Monday’s testimony, Child Protective Services’ spoke of their investigation in November of 2018, where Araujo was arrested and charged with double attempted capital murder of a child under 10.

At the time of the attack, the child was treated at a local hospital and has since recovered.

One of the witnesses Monday was Araujo’s pregnancy counselor, who testified Araujo was struggling with mental health issues.

The counselor testified that Araujo confessed to her that “she had reached a place of hopelessness.”

On Monday, Araujo’s attorney Dereck Wyatt said he is expected more of the upcoming testimony.

“I believe factually and legally my client did not do this and I think the first day’s testimony, which is the state’s case, is bearing that out,” Wyatt said.
