A defendant has entered a guilty plea and been sentenced in Pottawatomie County District Court on a felony count of child endangerment by permitting child abuse after two previous charges of enabling child sexual abuse were dismissed, court records show.
A conviction was obtained in the case when Danielle N. Shoopman, 29, entered a guilty plea to a new charge of child endangerment by permitting abuse.
In that new charge filed last week, she was accused, on or between May 1, 2012 and June 30, 2014, of permitting David D. Shoopman to have a child present at a location where a controlled dangerous substance was being repackaged, with the charge alleging she did not stop the drug use or repackaging and allowed David Shoopman to care for the child.
As a result of the guilty plea, she received a four-year deferred sentence and was ordered to pay fines and other court costs and comply with rules and conditions of the sentencing.
Danielle Shoopman originally faced two counts of enabling child sexual abuse, but those 2017 charges were officially dismissed, court records show.
In early 2018, David D. Shoopman, 31, pleaded guilty to a total of 12 felony counts, including sexual abuse of a child and manufacture of child pornography. He is currently serving numerous life sentences with the Department of Corrections.
