Mother Faces Fines for Daughter's 911 Calls

Posted: Updated:

ASTORIA, Ore. -Emergency dispatchers in Astoria are tired of answering calls from the 1-year-old daughter of Jessica May. 

The toddler dialed 911 a total of seven times last Thursday and nine other times before that, dating back to January. 

May says she was in the bathroom Thursday when her daughter Ayla found her phone and started playing. 

After the sixth call, an officer gave May a warning. But when it happened again, she was cited for abusing 911. If convicted, she could face up to a year in jail and a $6,000 fine.
