Couple's charges dropped
Placeholder Image
Child neglect charges have been dropped against parents accused of being stoned on meth and not caring for their 1-month-old. The parents, Sarah H. Hale and James N. Hale, both had child neglect charges dropped this week during their appearance before General Sessions Judge Bill Locke. Mr. Hale, who was also charged with domestic assault for allegedly abusing his wife, was placed in the second-chance program, meaning the charges will be dropped at the end of 90 days if he abides by the orders of the court.
