Man Pleads Guilty, Sentenced For Child Endangerment

A 33-year-old Laclede County man has pleaded guilty to two counts of first-degree endangering the welfare of a child and one count of first-degree endangering the welfare of children, creating substantial risk. Judge Kenneth Hayden sentenced Trevor Addis Wednesday to 5-years of supervised probation on each count.

Addis was arrested in January 2018 after the minor victim was treated at a local hospital. While answering questions, the girl told a nurse that Addis had been touching her in a sexual manner for the past six years. A trial had been scheduled for next month in Laclede County.
