Teenage Mother Of Newborn Found Buried In Yard Charged

LOUISBURG, N.C (July 22, 2014) A 16-year-old North Carolina mother whose newborn baby died and was buried in the yard of her family’s suburban home has been charged with concealing birth, Franklin County District Attorney Sam Currin said Tuesday.

The teenager was charged with the lowest class of felony and released after posting $50,000 bond, Currin said.

The girl has no prior criminal record, which means a conviction could involve a sentence of between 3 months and 8 months of community service under the state's sentencing grid.

Currin said Franklin County sheriff deputies handled the arrest and he didn't know the teen's name.

Last month authorities found the body of a full-term baby girl weighing 8½ pounds buried in the backyard of a home in a subdivision near Louisburg, N.C.
