in abuse case

Sheila Thouvenell, 51, who pleaded guilty in April to interference with law enforcement, was sentenced June 4 to one year probation.

Charged a year ago with three counts of aggravated witness intimidation and two counts of aggravated child endangerment she struck a plea agreement resulting in dismissal of those charges.

Her husband, Jerry Thouvenell, awaits trial in September in a related case. He is charged with 12 counts of aggravated indecent liberties with a child younger than 14.

All charges stem from incidents between Jan. 1, 2012, and Aug. 8, 2016. In each count, he is accused of engaging in lewd fondling or touching a child. He also is charged with battery of a child.
