HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) -

A 29-year-old former dental assistant has been charged with assault and drug violations after administering a cocktail of drugs to a 2-year-old girl as part of a dental procedure that left the patient unconscious for 12 hours.

The Kailua woman, identified as Nicole "Momi" Dudoit, turned herself in on Wednesday afternoon and her arraignment is set for March 14. If convicted, she could face up to 15 years in jail.

Prosecutors say Dudoit gave a 2-year-old patient two drugs that rendered the girl unconscious and put her life at risk. The incident occurred at the Island Dentistry for Children in 2013, the same dental office where 3-year-old Finley Boyle died after she was given a combination of five different sedatives.
