[ARCHIVED] Mother pleads guilty for role in daughter's death

Rachel Ball

District Attorney Tony Jordan announced today that Rachel Ball pled guilty to Criminally Negligent Homicide, Endangering the Welfare of a Child, Criminal Possession of a Controlled Substance with intent to sell, and Criminal Sale of a Controlled Substance, with a sentence that could bring from 11 years in state prison to up to 22 years in state prison with sentencing to be held at a future date.

This plea follows months of extensive investigation into the circumstances surrounding the death of Kaleigh Mae Cassell led by Washington County Sheriff's Sr. Investigator Anthony Leclaire.

Investigator Leclaire coordinated a comprehensive investigation, including assistance from the New York State Police BCI Investigators, the Forensic Investigation Unit and the New York State Police Crime Lab. "The investigation and information developed led to evidence supporting this plea agreement today," said Jordan.
