CINCINNATI - An Ohio woman has admitted giving her 2-year-old daughter marijuana and using her cell phone to record the child smoking it.

Hamilton County court officials say 21-year-old Jessica Gamble of suburban Cincinnati pleaded guilty Thursday to corruption of another with drugs and tampering with evidence.

Prosecutors dropped a child endangering charge in exchange for the plea.

Prosecutors say Gamble gave the toddler marijuana and used her cell phone to record video of the girl smoking in August.

The Cincinnati Enquirer reports that Gamble's attorney told the judge that Gamble has a history of mental illness and learning disorders.

Gamble could get up to 6 1/2 years at her sentencing Dec. 16.

She could have faced five additional years on the dropped charge.
