Varnold Sentenced to 120-Days in Child Endangerment Case
A Memphis woman is heading to the Missouri Department of Corrections after Judge William E. Alberty handed down the sentence April 28th in the 2nd Judicial Circuit Court in Edina.
Amber L. Varnold was sentenced to the Missouri Department of Corrections for five years. She entered a plea agreement on February 24th, pleading guilty to one count of endangering the welfare of a child in the first degree, stemming from an April 2008 incident.
According to the official court docket, probation was denied. The court reserved jurisdiction under section 559.115 RSMO, 120-day rule and requested report and recommendations from the DOC following her completion of the 120-day shock incarceration program.
Execution of the sentence was suspended until May 1st at 8:30 a.m. Court costs and jail board were assessed to the defendant along with a $46 crime victims compensation.
A special prosecutor fee of $5,281.30 was allowed for H. Scott Summers to be paid by the State of Missouri.
Counts one and three in the case were dismissed by state pursuant to the plea agreement.
