Investigators with the Moore County Sheriff’s Office assisted the Moore County Department of Social Services with a welfare check on children at a home in Carthage Tuesday.
After investigating the conditions of both the residence and children, it was determined the children would be removed from the home and the mother charged in the case, said Moore County Sheriff’s Office in a news release.
Roxanne Danielle Moyer, 28, from Carthage was arrested and charged with three counts of misdemeanor child abuse and three counts of misdemeanor child neglect.
Moyer was confined to the Moore County Detention Center under $75,000 bond and is scheduled to appear in Moore County District Court on January 16.
All defendants facing criminal charges are presumed innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.
