FAIRMONT — A Wetzel County woman has been charged with felony child neglect creating risk of injury.

According to the criminal complaint filed at Marion County Magistrate Court by Marion County sheriff’s deputy N. Minnick, Donna Ann Campbell, 30, of 14 Middlefork Road, Burton, had driven to the Mannington police station “because she needed to call someone.”

Mannington Officer Price had informed Minnick they had dealt with Campbell earlier on Mod’s Run. She was “still intoxicated, and was earlier.”

Her 8-year-old daughter was in the back seat of the vehicle with Campbell when she drove to the police station. The officer could smell “the distinct odor of an alcoholic beverage” from Campbell, who then failed three sobriety tests. She was placed under arrest and the child was picked up by her father.

She was held on $3,000 bond and is lodged at the North Central Regional Jail.

The felony is punishable upon conviction by one to five years incarceration and a fine of up to $3,000.
