A 45-year-old Talent woman faces a series of drug-related charges, including supplying a controlled substance to a minor, following a joint investigation into allegations of ongoing physical and mental abuse toward her two teenage children.
Valery Lee Podsobinski, 45, of the 400 block of Arnos Street, indicted last week in Jackson County Circuit Court on charges including possession of hallucinogens, possession of marijuana, delivery of marijuana, three counts of felony fourth-degree assault, fourth-degree assault and two counts of reckless endangering.
Podsobinski was booked into jail and released on her own recognizance.
According to Jackson County Deputy District Attorney Mandi Gould, the investigation began in January with allegations of weekly physical abuse and assaults on the teens using belts, paddles, wooden spoons and spatulas.
Additionally, Podsobinski reportedly fed the youths marijuana in food, and was also found in possession of over an ounce of marijuana and psilocybin mushrooms.
