A 32-year-old woman accused of using her 11-year-old daughter to drive the mom and two friends during a night of drinking has pleaded not guilty to child abuse.
Jennifer Etgen, of Tilden, is out of jail on bond and is scheduled
for trial on June 12.
Norfolk police say an officer saw a pickup driven by the girl almost hit a curb just before 3:15 a.m. on March 13.
After pulling over the truck, the officer was told the girl was driving because her mom and two friends had been drinking alcohol. The felony charge of child abuse carries a maximum penalty of five years in prison.
