Jan. 13, 2014MARYVILLE, Mo. | By: J. Coffey
Last week's guilty plea by Matt Barnett of Maryville to misdemeanor child endangerment charges in the Daisy Coleman case brings an end to the criminal investigation into the incident that brought national attention to Maryville. Jackson County Prosecutor Jean Peters-Baker was appointed to review the case in October after a Kansas City Star article indicated alleged sexual assault charges were dropped due to political pressure in the community.
Nodaway County Prosecuting Attorney Robert Rice says he was pleased with the work done by Baker.
Rice says he wasn't surprised the special prosecutor ended up filing similar charges to those he was seeking.
