A Newton, Iowa woman faces a child endangerment charge after it was discovered her 12-year-old daughter is pregnant.

She was charged after an investigation found she ignored comments from multiple witnesses that a 24-year-old man was allegedly engaging in sexual behavior with the girl. Police say the girl also tried to tell her mother about it.

Her mother has a court appearance scheduled for September 9th. The man faces a third-degree sexual abuse charge.
