A 57-year-old Corvallis woman who became incapacitated by alcohol while caring for her grandson should spend 15 days in jail, a Benton County Circuit Court judge ordered Thursday.

Carla Jean Page pleaded guilty to first-degree criminal mistreatment, a felony carrying a maximum penalty of five years in prison.

In additional to jail, Page should spend three years on supervised probation, Judge David Connell decided. Page should also undergo a substance abuse evaluation and complete all recommended treatment, the judge ordered.

Page appeared in court out of custody and is expected to turn herself into the jail later this month. David Corden represented Page in court.

According to a Corvallis police officer’s report, Page was caring for her 6-year-old grandson in August 2016 when the boy’s mother returned to the home to find Page unresponsive. The woman called for an ambulance and Page was taken to Good Samaritan Regional Medical Center, the report states. Nurses there told police Page was suffering from alcohol withdrawals and had methamphetamine in her system, according to the report.

Page declined to comment during the hearing. The judge advised Page not to have any unlawful contact with the victim.
