MADISON, Neb. (AP) - A 44-year-old Norfolk man accused of using methamphetamine near his 4-year-old child has been given a year behind bars.

The Norfolk Daily News reports (https://bit.ly/1wBVaYn ) that Troy Hoffie lived in the same residence as his child and used meth there. Deputy County attorney Matthew Kieran said in court on Friday that the child tested “17 times above the confirmation level necessary to test positive for methamphetamine.”

Online court records say Hoffie pleaded guilty to misdemeanor negligent child abuse after prosecutors lowered the charge from a felony.
