3 years of probation ordered for child neglect

Posted: Updated:

LA CROSSE, Wisconsin (WXOW) - A judge gives a La Crosse woman probation after her conviction for criminally neglecting her boyfriend's 3-year-old daughter.

Judge Dale Pasell ordered three years of probation for 21-year-old Josie Dikeman during sentencing Monday in La Crosse County Circuit Court.

Dikeman and the child's father, Dustin Barnes, were arrested after a doctor found the toddler was malnourished and had old and new fractures on her hands and feet.

Dikeman pleaded guilty to child neglect resulting in bodily harm as party to the crime.

The La Crosse Tribune says Barnes will also serve three years of probation after he finishes an eight year prison term in an unrelated case.
