A woman accused of regularly giving heroin to her 12-year-old daughter has pleaded guilty to a drug charge in Hennepin County.

Rebecca Rachelle Hill, 37, is expected to be sentenced Feb. 12 to four years in prison, the Hennepin County Attorney's Office reported. Charges of child endangerment, motor vehicle theft and giving false information to police will dropped.

Hill is formerly of Maple Grove, court records say.
    
Hill, who was sleeping out of her car at the time, was arrested on an outstanding warrant Oct. 14 at the Mall of America in Bloomington after store security caught her and her daughter stealing clothes. The girl was allowed to leave with her grandmother.
    
The next day, the girl's father called police and said he had taken his daughter to a hospital because she was suffering from withdrawal.
    
The girl successfully made it through drug withdrawal but is continuing treatment, according to the county attorney's office.
