A pair of Chippewa Valley parents are facing neglect charges after the state says they continue to ignore their three kids.
Prosecutors in Eau Claire County this week filed nine counts of neglect against James and Holly Hasledalen. Investigators say child protective services has been to the couple’s home in Eau Claire dozens of times over the past few months. Each time they found the couple’s three kids, ages eight, two, and nearly five-months-old, filthy and unsupervised.
Investigators say the oldest child tested positive for being exposed to meth. The judge allowed the Hasledalens out of jail, but has banned them from seeing their kids without supervision.
