Megan Walker recently pleaded guilty of endangering the welfare of a minor for allowing her child to ingest large amounts of methamphetamine while in her care.

Walker, 28, of Magnolia, was in Columbia County Circuit Court when she accepted a punishment of five years’ probation for her plea.

Deputy Prosecuting attorney Ryan Rainwater said the incident happened on or around October 16, 2020. Walker appeared unemotional and replied to questions asked as directed by her defense attorney, Sandi O’Brien. She agreed to pay $200 of her fees after court and said she would pay the remaining fees on the next court date on April 20.

According to the probable cause affidavit, Magnolia Police Detective William Schaefer was contacted by Deanna Fields Goldman about a child in her care who was acting abnormal and in poor health.

When contacted Friday afternoon, Goldman, who is now the child’s legal guardian and is going through an adoption process for the child, said she had previously told Magnolia police Walker was involved with people who were cooking methamphetamine and went to the houses where it was cooked and sold.
