PHOENIX (CBS5) -

A Phoenix mother faces four counts of child abuse after she allegedly smoked methamphetamine while her 6-year-old son was in the bed next to her awake, police said.

Misty Lynn Echavarria, 34, was arrested Saturday night in the 2100 block of North Central Avenue.

Echavarria told police that she smoked meth three to four times with four other men in the room, according to a court document.

She said she eventually left her son on the bed and in the care of one of the men and went to fix a computer, court paperwork stated.

Echavarria said that when she went back to the house to retrieve her son, the youngster told her he had been sexually assaulted by the man left in his care, the court document said.
