A Callaway County man and wife plead guilty to putting their granddaughter in the trunk of their car while on a Jefferson City shopping trip.
Marc and Mary Vaucher admitted to putting the 5–year-old in the trunk and had faced endangering the welfare of a child charges. Those charges were reduced to “failure to secure a child.”
A witness called police in May after seeing the girl climb out of the trunk at the Jefferson City Menards. The couple admitted they put her in the trunk after putting some furniture inside the car… leaving no room for the girl. They were fined $50 dollars. The child wasn’t hurt.
