District Attorney appeals Kasey Dischman order 

The assistant District attorney has  challenged Judge Shafffers order dismisssing charges against a woman who allegedly overdosed while seven months pregnant. 

The certification of the appeal, signed by Assistant District Attorney Laura Pitchford states that Shaffer’s order “will terminate or substantially handicap the prosecution.”

Dischman was charged in June with felony aggravated assault of an unborn child following her alleged June 23 overdose, which resulted in an emergency cesarean section and her baby being prematurely delivered.

The case remains inactive pending that appeal.
