Granville Woman Arrested For Child Endangerment
November 18, 2021 6:30am
Sioux County authorities arrested a Granville woman Sunday morning on charges of child endangerment. The Sioux County Sheriff’s Office arrested 20-year-old Christina Fivecoate-Champion after an investigation started when the Orange City Area Health System reported an 11 month-old child was brought there for a dislocated elbow. Upon further investigation, the examination revealed several additional fractures to the child’s arm.
Fivecoate-Champion, the child’s mother, initially reported that the child fell in a crib with the arm between the crib rails, causing the injury. A medical evaluation performed at Sanford Children’s Hospital, in Sioux Falls, revealed additional injuries that had occurred sometime within prior weeks to the dislocated elbow, indicating a pattern of abuse.
The sheriff’s office, after receiving reports from medical professionals involved in the case, determined the injuries to be inconsistent with Fivecoat-Champion’s explanation.
Following medical treatment and discharge from medical care, the Iowa Department of Human Services placed the 11 month-old victim into foster care.
Fivecoate-Champion was charged with two counts of felony Child Endangerment that caused serious injury.
