MASON CITY, Iowa- A local woman charged after a serious crash is now being sentenced.
Margaret Brown was given a suspended 5 year prison sentence, 5 years probation, and ordered to pay fines on Monday.
The two charges of child endangerment stem from a crash that happened last April. The crash happened on Highway 65 near Rockwell when, according to the Cerro Gordo County Sheriff’s Office, Robin Jenks lost control and rolled, injuring all five people in the vehicle including three children. Brown was in the car at the time of the accident. One of the children was taken to a hospital in critical condition.
Jenks has already been sentenced in the case on more serious charges.
