Tampa > Parents give Drugs to Kids as Reward for Behavior

| May 8, 2015


TAMPA — St. Petersburg authorities say a Florida couple gave their teenage daughters cocaine and marijuana if they went to school and did household chores.

Pinellas County Sheriff’s detectives said Chad and Joey Mudd gave their daughters, ages 13 and 14, drugs as a “bargaining tool” for school attendance and doing chores. They were arrested Monday.

According to an affidavit, the mother said she smoked pot with her daughters and the father said he snorted cocaine with the teens in his truck.

Chad Mudd, the 36-year-old father, was charged with child abuse and possession of cocaine. Joey Mudd, the girls’ 34-year-old mom, was charged with child abuse.

They were released on bail.

    The Secret is to give them the coke when they’re cleaning. That house would sparkle.
