PRINCETON, WV (LOOTPRESS) – A mother is facing child neglect charges after refusing to get her child medical attention which puts the child at risk of severe bodily injury or death.

According to detectives, a Princeton officer responded to Princeton Community Hospital Emergency Room, where an ER physician advised they were treating a child and that the child’s mother, Jacklyn Renee Popp, 28, of Bluefield, WV, signed her daughter out against medical advice. The ER doctor said that the child’s condition was taking a turn for the worse and that the mother signing her out of the ER against medical advice would create a substantial risk of severe bodily harm or death.

Popp was found an hour later nearby the hospital on a park bench.

Popp was charged with child neglect creating the risk of bodily injury due to her refusing to get her child the medical attention needed.
