A Gardnerville woman has pleaded guilty to charges of child neglect…after depriving her two young children of food and water.
38-year-old Sandy Linn entered the plea Tuesday in Douglas County District Court.
Court documents show that Linn deprived her son of food and water consistently, to the point that the boy is below average height and weight for his age group.
Linn is also accused of forcing her daughter to stand in a corner for several hours. The girl is suffering from bone diseases and liver damage…conditions that doctors say are consistent with neglect.
Linn will be sentenced May 12.
