Parents Charged with Child Endangerment



The parents of an 8-month old child are in Hopkins County Jail charged with child endangerment with eminent bodily injury. The man and woman from Sulphur Springs were arrested Wednesday for endangering their child. The female child had tested positive for methamphetamine. The parents also tested positive. Twenty eight (28) year old Jeremy Don Campbell and 27-year old Crystal Leeann Allen Campbell were charged with endangering a child with eminent bodily injury before Justice of the Peace B.J. Teer, who set bond on each at $75,000.

Special Crimes Unit Lt. Harold McClure told KSST News that on Tuesday Child Protective Services brought an investigation they were conducting to the Sulphur Springs Special Crimes Unit. Based on review of the CPS and the Crimes Unit investigation, the 8th Judicial District Attorney’s office sought and obtained an arrest warrant. McClure said the child had been subjected to second hand smoke as the parents smoke the meth. He added that the handling of the methamphetamine and then handling the child in everyday parental care, such as changing a diaper or holding the child, would subject the child to the substance.  

McClure added Child Protective Services had taken custody of the child and placed her in foster care.
