Ohio parents of fenced-in 4-year-old get jail time

Associated Press

LANCASTER: A central Ohio couple who confined a 4-year-old girl at night in a bed wrapped with steel fencing have pleaded guilty to child endangering in a plea deal and been sentenced to 180 days in jail, minus time already served.

The couple told a Fairfield County judge they were trying to keep the girl safe because she wandered at night. The prosecution contended it was improper parenting and had argued the Pleasantville couple should spent at least some time in prison.

A judge on Monday sentenced 36-year-old Russell Terry and 33-year-old Jamie Curnell. They won’t have to serve their suspended 78-month prison sentences if they complete five years of probation.

Kidnapping and abduction charges against them were dismissed.

County Prosecutor Gregg Marx says a relative now cares for the girl.
