Iowa mother charged after girl becomes pregnant

NEWTON, Iowa (AP) — Authorities say a central Iowa woman faces a child endangerment charge after it was discovered her 12-year-old daughter is pregnant.

Police say the Newton woman was charged Friday after an investigation showed she ignored comments from multiple witnesses that a 24-year-old man was allegedly engaging in sexual behavior with the girl. Police say the girl also tried to tell her mother about the behavior.

Court documents say a doctor's visit revealed the girl was pregnant. The man faces a third-degree sexual abuse charge.

The Associated Press is not naming the woman to protect the child's identity. She has a court appearance scheduled on Sept. 9.
