(WBIR) Bond is now set for the East Tennessee mother charged with assault after she and her newborn baby tested postive for drugs.

A judge set a $2,000 bond for Mallory Loyola, jail officials tell WBIR. She also has a court date set for later this month.

Loyola is the first mother to be charged under Tennessee’s new law that allows prosecutors to pursue legal action against women who use drugs while pregnant.
