      Rocky Mount Woman Found Guilty on Child Abuse, Drug Charges

      Franklin Co., VA - A Rocky Mount woman has been convicted of two felonies on charges she tried to harm a five-year-old with prescription drugs.

      Kristie Leigh Hodges, 42, was in Franklin County Circuit Court on Friday.

      A jury found Hodges guilty on child abuse and drug distribution charges.

      Hodges was arrested last June, two months after a call to police that said she tried to give drugs to a five-year-old to hurt the child.

      Hodges will be sentenced on March 11.
