(CBS/AP) A former Ohio church day care worker has been convicted of endangering children after she laced kids' candy with a dietary supplement.
Prosecutors say she Donna Scott, 42, of Cincinnati, and a co-worker wanted the children to sleep to make their jobs easier and gave them melatonin, a naturally occurring hormone whose possible side effects in supplement form include dizziness and nightmares.
Scott faces sentencing on Sept. 15 on three counts of child endangering, which carries a maximum possible penalty of six months in jail.
Scott's attorney told jurors she used poor judgment and parents were right to be upset. But he contended she didn't commit a crime.
The other worker was sentenced to six months in jail after convictions for child endangering and misrepresentation by a child care provider.
