Mom jailed for child abuse; officials say filthy home reeked
SOUTH SIOUX CITY, Neb. (AP) — A mother in northeast Nebraska whose filthy home reeked has been sentenced for child abuse.
The Sioux City (Iowa) Journal reports that 42-year-old Jennifer Corrin was given 90 days in jail on each of the four misdemeanor counts. She was credited for 187 days already spent in custody.
Corrin was arrested in July after police responding to a call at her South Sioux City home saw cockroaches on the walls, old food containers, rotten food, pizza crusts, dog feces, piles of dirty clothes and open bags of trash throughout the house.
Her children have been placed with foster families.
Records say Corrin was convicted of two counts of child abuse in 2015 in a similar case. She served more than seven months after violating her probation.
