RAY COUNTY, MO (KCTV) -

A Ray County mother is behind bars after a disturbing photo that seems to show her smoking a controlled substance in the presence of a baby.

The photo of 27-year-old Ashley Lewis was shared Monday on social media with the caption "Such beauty going to waste smoking all that meth. I hope they find out and take that baby until you get clean."

Lewis is in the Ray County jail facing a variety of charges, including possession of a controlled substance and endangering the welfare of a child.

According to court documents, Lewis was in possession of meth in the presence of a child less than 17-years-old.

The documents also say Lewis had eight glass smoking pipes, five cut straws, a digital scale, a lighter and a hand-held propane torch.

The materials are described as drug paraphernalia that Lewis possessed "with intent to use to smoke and ingest controlled substances."

If convicted of all charges, Lewis could face up to 15 years in prison.
