(Stillwater) — A Ripley woman whose home was described by authorities as hazardous to the health of her three young children has been placed on five years’ probation for child neglect, possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Felicia Ann Haley, 24, who had pleaded guilty to the charges, was also ordered to pay $600 in fines and assessments by District Judge Donald Worthington on March 20.

If she successfully completes her probation, which includes a requirement that she follow the recommendations contained in a background report by the state Department of Corrections, she will not have a criminal record since she was given a five-year deferred sentence.

Her husband, Toby Dean Haley, 30, has been ordered to appear in court on May 1 for a pre-trial hearing on charges of child endangerment, possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia. He is free on $15,000 bond.

The Haleys were arrested at 5:30 p.m. on Nov. 9, 2007, at their rural Ripley residence, which had an overwhelming odor of “rotten food, animal feces and other unknown foul odors,” Stillwater Police Detective John Stanbery wrote in an affidavit.

When Payne County Sheriff’s Deputy Gregg Russell and Stanbery went to the home to serve a search warrant, “I observed numerous piles of dirty clothes throughout the house, along with rotten food in the living room and kitchen,” Stanbery wrote in his affidavit.

“I also noticed animal feces on the floor, cabinets and throughout the remainder of the residence,” Stanbery alleged in his affidavit.

“I observed numerous cockroaches near the baby’s clothes, diaper bag and drinking cup, and numerous cockroaches in every other room, cabinet and area of the residence,” Stanbery alleged in his affidavit.

Based on the odor and the amount of trash in the house, Stanbery felt that the air and the residence were hazardous to his health, so for his safety he wore a hazardous material suit and personal respiratory device, according to his affidavit.

Stanbery found a red metal container with about three grams of a green leafy substance, his affidavit alleged.

“I also located a plastic container that also contained a green leafy substance with an approximate weight of 184 grams that field-tested positive for marijuana,” Stanbery alleged in his affidavit.

Stanbery also found five marijuana pipes and one “joint” rolling device, his affidavit alleged.

Based on the condition of the residence, state Department of Human Services caseworker Whitney Pressley responded, the affidavit said.

DHS took custody of the three children, ages 18 months, four years and six years, and removed them from the residence while Stanbery was executing the search warrant, his affidavit said.
