A Charlottesville woman has pleaded guilty to cocaine possession. Officials say her drug use may have caused the death of her unborn baby.

Twenty-four-year-old Garan Lea Drymond pleaded guilty Thursday morning, and was released on bond, pending her sentencing hearing in July.

Drymond was accused of smoking cocaine at a Charlottesville hotel last May, which led to the stillborn birth of her son.

Under Virginia law, she is not liable for her child's death.
