[March 07, 2009]  KETTERING, Ohio (AP) -- An Ohio mother spotted breast-feeding a youngster and talking on a phone while driving has pleaded not guilty to charges of child endangering and unlawful child restraint.

RestaurantAttorney Joseph Warden filed the plea Thursday in Kettering Municipal Court on behalf of 39-year-old Genine Compton of Kettering.

Police filed the misdemeanor charges after a motorist saw Compton on Feb. 26. Authorities used a license plate number to track her down.

Police say Compton told them she was breast-feeding and wouldn't let her child go hungry.

Warden says he believes his client is not guilty.

Police say the woman faces up to 180 days in jail and a $1,800 fine if convicted.
