(Richmond, IN)--A week ago, we told you that Wayne County had had 344 cases of child neglect last year.  Over the weekend, two Richmond residents were arrested for neglect of a dependent.  26-year-old Ashlie Butts and 28-year-old  Robert Jasso were taken into custody on what has become a problem area – Glen Court.  Butts and Jasso were able to come up with a thousand dollars each and were released from jail.  Jail records indicate Butts was arrested for theft last month.  Jasso has previous marijuana and alcohol convictions.
