BY STACI WILSON

A Choconut Twp. couple faces charges in Montrose District Court after they allegedly forced a 13-year-old girl to smoke methamphetamine with them on April 8.

Christian Sorenson, 44, and Amber Sorenson, 24, were charged by Tpr. John Oliver with a felony count of endangering the welfare of children and misdemeanor counts of corruption of minors and recklessly endangering another person.

Preliminary hearings for Christian and Amber Sorenson, scheduled to be held Monday, April 23, were continued.

The juvenile told police in an interview on April 11 that she saw the couple in a smoke-filled room and asked them why there was smoke. The Sorensons, according to the affidavit, told the child that they were smoking “weed” and invited her to smoke with them.

The girl, according to police, told the couple she had never before smoked marijuana but was told by Amber Sorenson that it would stay a secret between them.

The juvenile reported to police that she felt sick after smoking the pipe they had handed her and still felt extremely sick the next day.

The victim was taken toRobertPackardHospital, Sayre, for a blood test on April 12, to determine the presence of marijuana.

According to the affidavit, there was no marijuana in the teen’s blood system but there was methamphetamine.
