CHATTANOOGA – An investigation by Special Agents with the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation has resulted in the arrest of a Grundy County woman, who is charged with the aggravated neglect and endangerment of her son when he was an infant.
At the request of 12th District Attorney General Michael Taylor, TBI Special Agents joined investigators with the Grundy County Sheriff’s Office on November 22, 2013, in investigating allegations of child endangerment and neglect of a male infant. During the course of the investigation, Agents developed information that in February 2013, Meredith Richardson was responsible for the endangerment and neglect of her infant son.
In March, the Grundy County Grand Jury indicted Richardson, charging the 34-year-old with one count of Aggravated Child Neglect and one count of Aggravated Child Endangerment. She was arrested Tuesday night by deputies with the Grundy County Sheriff’s Office and booked into the Grundy County Jail. She is being held on a $100,000 bond.
