A conviction in the General Sessions Court

An Oconee jury late yesterday afternoon returned a verdict of guilty on all charges against a young Westminster area mother charged with unlawful neglect of children. The judge ordered Misty Edwards to serve 90 days, followed by five years of probation. DSS and sheriff’s officers testified about  the conditions they found as part of their investigation at a home where her children were staying. The defendant did not testify in her defense, but the jury heard testimony from Edwards’ mother and a family friend.
