Man sentenced for using heroin while kids were home

LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) – A Lafayette man is sentenced to three years in prison for using heroin while his two young children were in the house.

In June, prosecutors said police were called to a home on the 1900 block of Morton Street where Tadd Mayhew, 28, and another man were passed out in the bathroom. The mother of Mayhew’s children told police she had left their children with Mayhew while she went to work.

Mayhew pleaded guilty last month to felony counts of narcotic possession and neglect of a dependent. He was sentenced Monday to three years in prison and one year in community corrections. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
