Michaele Thorne, accused of child endangerment

(WKBN) – A woman from Salem is going to spend the next year and a half in prison after pleading guilty to child endangering.

Michaele Thorne was sentenced Monday afternoon in Columbiana County Common Pleas Court.

Prosecutors say her live-in boyfriend, Thomas Browning, had been abusing Thorne’s two-year-old son but that she did nothing to stop the abuse.

A jury took less than an hour to convict Browning this summer on felonious assault.
