WILLISTON, N.D. (AP) - A Williston mother of four is accused of exposing her children to drugs, leaving them in the care of a man who used a kitchen spoon to administer punishment and not getting help for her son’s fractured bones.

Thirty-one-year-old Stephanie Johnsrud faces felony child abuse charges, along with misdemeanor drug and false reporting counts. She could face 37 years in prison if convicted. Court documents don’t list an attorney for her, and a listed home telephone number couldn’t be found.

The New Town man living with Johnsrud also faces felony child abuse charges. Court documents don’t list an attorney for 25-year-old Daniel Kempton, and he doesn’t have a listed telephone number.

The Williston Herald reports (https://bit.ly/1OQ9sQt ) both suspects are due back in court Nov. 5. They could enter pleas then.
