Alford Plea for Des Moines Mom Accused of Tying Up Her Children
DES MOINES, Iowa -- A Des Moines woman accused of tying up her three children has entered an Alford plea to three counts of child endangerment. That means 38-year-old Jessica Henderson does not admit guilt but recognizes there's enough evidence to convict her at trial. Police arrested Henderson in September of 2018 after a family friend visiting the home saw her then 4-year-old, 5-year-old and 9-year-old children tied up.
