New Charges for Second Woman in April Crash

Margaret Brown

MASON CITY, IA – Earlier this week, a Sheffield woman turned herself in and was charged with several crimes stemming from a crash that happened in April.  And now another woman has turned herself in.

On Monday July 1, Robin Jenks, 39, was charged with Homicide or Serious Injury by Vehicle, three counts of Child Endangerment, Operating While Under the Influence, Failure to Have a Valid License or Permit, Failure to Maintain Control, and Open Container.

And on Friday July 5, Margaret Brown turned herself in and was charged with 2 counts of Child Endangerment, and Permitting an Unauthorized Person to Drive.  Brown is currently being held at the Cerro Gordo County Jail on a $10,000 Cash bond.

KIMT News 3 had reported in April that Jenks was behind the wheel during a serious crash on April 27 that left a five-year-old child in critical condition.  The crash happened on Highway 65 near Rockwell when, according to the Cerro Gordo County Sheriff’s Office, Jenks lost control and rolled, injuring all five people in the vehicle including three children.  Margaret Brown was in the car at the time of the accident.

Jaylan Brown was airlifted to Mayo in Rochester where he was then listed in critical condition.  We have not received an update on his condition since then, though Cerro Gordo County Sheriff Kevin Pals says the charge of Homicide or Serious Injury by Vehicle is for serious injuries suffered by Brown.

The investigation is ongoing.
