A Sikeston woman in jail for allegedly neglecting her daughter pleads not guilty! 37-year-old Sherrie Campbell was arrested February 9th after DPS responded to her home on West Center Street. Police acted on a Missouri Children’s Division hotline call and found unacceptable living conditions inside. The home was very cold, had little food, and was in unsanitary condition. The 15-year-old also had serious dental problems. The detective made a judgment call to take the girl into custody and place her in the care of another family member. Campbell is charged with felony child endangerment. She posted a 15-thousand-dollar bond and pleaded not guilty Thursday before Judge David Dolan in Benton. She has a trial setting hearing August 23rd.
