Woman charged with assault on unborn child

LEWISTOWN – Mifflin County Regional Police said a Lewistown woman was charged with a felony count of aggravated assault on an unborn child after they found her overdosing on heroin.

Police said Shavon N. Fisher, 29, has a history of drug abuse and was found in the evening hours of Aug. 2, in her bedroom and was unresponsive.

Police said Fame EMS responded to the scene and administered an anti-narcotic, to which Fisher responded with positive results.

Officers recovered several empty heroin bags, a syringe and a used pregnancy test from the scene, which displayed a positive result, according to court documents.

Fisher was then transported to Lewistown Hospital where further tests confirmed she is six-to-seven weeks pregnant, police said. She also tested positive for opiates, police said.

Fisher remains incarcerated in the Mifflin County Correctional Facility in lieu of $35,000 bail. In addition to the aggravated assault charge, Fisher is also charged with possession of drug paraphernalia.
