She didn’t call 911 or take her children to the hospital. When her older children, ages 5 and 8, began feeling ill, she didn’t immediately tell anyone why — that she had inadvertently given her children methadone, thinking it was Gatorade. On Tuesday, a judge sentenced Goff to prison for up to 15 years for this. Neither the prosecution nor the defense attorney asked the judge to send the 33-year-old mother to prison.

But by week’s end, Koerber was no longer criminally charged. It was a remarkable turn of events, made more so by the claims that followed U.S District Judge Clark Waddoups’ ruling.
