A Bangor mother accused of exposing her baby to methamphetamine has been sentenced.

21-year-old Alyssa Murch admitted to running a meth lab out of a home on Davis Road and to using meth while breastfeeding.

Wednesday, a judge sentenced her to 76 days in jail with credit for time already served.

She'll also be admitted to in-patient rehab.

Murch will take part in to the Maine Drug Court Program and will spend 4 years on probation.

Asst. District Attorney Suzanne Russell says, "Drug court is a very intensive program that she will have to complete in order to get the good disposition later on. So, she has a lot of incentive to rehabilitate her life and that's the balance we're trying to strike with this very serious charge, is a punishment in rehabilitation."

Murch said in court she's a mother of two with a third on the way.
