Jacqueline Crank Indicted on Child Abuse Charges

WATE, Apr. 16, 2003

LOUDON COUNTY (WATE) — A woman accused of not seeking medical help for her dying daughter is again facing charges.

A Loudon County grand jury Wednesday indicted Jaqueline Crank on misdemeanor child abuse and misdemeanor child neglect.

Crank’s daughter, Jessica, died of cancer in September 2002.

The grand jury also indicted Ariel Ben Sherman on the same charges. He’s the leader of a small religious sect that Crank belonged to.

Crank’s attorney says his client will plead not guilty and she’s pleased the grand jury didn’t pursue the felony charges that were dismissed last year in sessions court.
