According to NIH: Neonatal abstinence syndrome occurs when a pregnant woman takes addictive illicit or prescription drugs during the pregnancy. Drugs pass through the placenta and reach the baby. The baby becomes addicted along with the mother. At birth, the baby is still dependent on the drug. Because the baby is no longer getting the drug after birth, symptoms of withdrawal occur.
Samuel Alexie Nicketa, 34, was arrested by state troopers earlier this month in Manokotak after his brother Vincent Nicketa reported he had seen him twice touching a 10-year-old girl during the night.
The sexual abuse is alleged to have occurred on November 5. Vincent Nicketa told troopers that when he got up to use the restroom in the middle of the night, he came back and found Samuel crouched on the floor next to the victim. A few hours later it happened again. Samuel Nicketa was allegedly touching the victim between her legs.
