No jail for mother who pleaded guilty to child endangering

No prison time for a Rocky River mother who pleaded guilty to child abuse.

Nneeka Anderson was sentenced to probation during her sentencing on Wednesday morning.

On September 22, 2011, Anderson took her 7-year-old son to Fairview Hospital with third degree burns on his hand and arm. The child was transported to MetroHealth's Burn Unit.

Nurses called Rocky River Police due to inconsistencies in the child's story and other signs of possible physical abuse.

Police interviewed Simon, 27, Anderson's boyfriend and father of her 3-year-old daughter, at their residence on Purnell Avenue.

The officer noticed that the 3-year-old girl, wearing only a diaper, looked extremely malnourished, had healed scars covering her body and was unable to walk.

EMS was called and the 3-year-old victim was taken to the hospital.

On May 21, Anderson pleaded guilty to two counts of endangering children. She faced a maximum of six years in prison.

On May 23, Simon pleaded guilty to two counts of endangering children. His sentencing is scheduled for July 3. He faces a maximum of 11 years in prison.
