KLAMATH FALLS, Ore. (AP) – A woman in southern Oregon was convicted for her role in a case of neglect involving a 4-year-old child.
The Herald and News reports Lori Meeks and Matthew Oakley were arrested in March after the Klamath County Sheriff’s Office said the pair was keeping a 4-year-old child confined in their Klamath Falls home and was mistreating the child.
Meeks was convicted Wednesday of first-degree criminal mistreatment and sentenced to 30 days in jail and three years probation.
According to Klamath County District Attorney Eve Costello, “As a result of her care of this child, the child is severely delayed in developmental progress.”
The case against Oakley is pending, and he is facing two counts of criminal mistreatment.
