Madison County Deputies arrested a woman Wednesday and charged her with first degree criminal abuse of a child younger than 12 year of age. The warrant states that 26 year old Jennifer Wainscott of Richmond was responsible for the care taking of a five year old between August and the end of November of 2018.
In a related arrest, Jeremiah Frank (who we covered the story of yesterday in our news brief and online) was also charged in the case and apparently forced the child into a stool and caused cuts and abrasions to the five year old. The child also allegedly was spanked excessively. Wainscott did not apparently seek medical attention for the child. Both were taken to the Madison County Detention Center.
