Woman pleads guilty to burglaries while pregnant

Legal Business Posted on

An Ohio woman who authorities say burglarized homes while her children waited in her car and at times used her 5-year-old son to help with break-ins has pleaded guilty to various charges. Samantha Brewer, of the Cincinnati suburb of Cleves, pleaded guilty Wednesday to burglary, attempted burglary and child endangering.

A prosecutor says most of the crimes occurred while 26-year-old Brewer was taking her sons, now 6 and 7, to or from school. Authorities say she sometimes used her younger son as a lookout and at least once put him inside a house through a window to unlock the door.

Brewer was pregnant at the time of the April and May burglaries in Harrison. She says she gave birth to a girl on June 4 while in jail.

She blamed the burglaries on an addiction to pain medication.
