Largo residents Joey and Chad Mudd passed on their Miranda rights and admitted to police they used drugs at least five times with their 13-year-old and 15-year-old daughters to get them to do "household chores and excel in school."
According to The Smoking Gun
, the mother, Joey Mudd (pictured above left), was charged with two counts of child abuse and was released from the Pinellas County jail early [Wednesday] morning after posting $5,000 bond. "She has been ordered to have no contact with her children, who are in the care of a relative. Chad Mudd, a restaurant worker, remains locked up on six counts of child abuse and a cocaine possession count."
Their children (there's also a child still in pre-school) have reportedly been placed with a family member.
Two Florida parents were arrested Monday for allegedly using cocaine and marijuana as a "bargaining tool" with their teenage daughters.
