Mother charged after baby found alone in Gresham building
The mother of an abandoned baby found over the weekend has been charged, and will appear in bond court today.
Johnetta Smith is facing a felony count of child abandonment.
Police say she left her 1-year-old daughter in the entryway of an apartment building in the Gresham neighborhood Saturday night.
Police quickly identified Smith and her baby, but Smith didn’t come forward until Monday when she turned herself in to police.
The baby is in good condition, and in DCFS custody.
