Newton Woman Charged with Child Endangerment after Daughter Gets Pregnant
Authorities say a central Iowa woman faces a child endangerment charge after it was discovered her 12-year-old daughter is pregnant. Police say the Newton woman was charged Friday after an investigation showed she ignored comments from multiple witnesses that a man was allegedly engaging in sexual behavior with the girl. Police say the girl also tried to tell her mother about the behavior. Court documents say a doctor's visit revealed the girl was pregnant. 24 year-old Jacob White faces a third-degree sexual abuse charge. The girl's mother has a court appearance scheduled on Sept. 9.
