Footer pleaded guilty to child endangerment.
She was given three years of probation and will have to register as a level one sex offender.Frankly, I think the judge should have sentenced her to prison for a while and forget about the protection order for the victim. For crying out loud, why let her loose to do the same.
A judge also ordered an issue of protection for the 16-year-old victim.
