3 years of probation ordered for child neglect


LA CROSSE (WKOW) -- A La Crosse woman charged with criminally neglecting her boyfriend's 3-year-old daughter has been sentenced to probation.

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

According to the La Crosse Tribune, Barnes will also serve three years of probation after he finishes an eight year prison term in an unrelated case.
