The Wayne County Sheriff’s Office reports the arrest of a Huron woman following an investigation into significant time missed at school for a student.
Deputies say Karen Simpkins, 50, of Huron was charged with endangering the welfare of a child after allowing her 13-year-old daughter to miss 62 days of school.
Her daughter was placed on PINS, according to officials.
Deputies have also completed a number of home visits where the daughter was found home alone, babysitting another child, or playing with friends in the neighborhood.
Simpkins will answer the child endangerment charge at a later date.
