MOUNT VERNON — Tabitha M. Raver, 28, entered a guilty plea to four counts of endangering children Friday morning in Knox County Court of Common Pleas. Raver had earlier entered a not-guilty plea but changed her plea to guilty. She was arrested on Aug. 21, 2012, on a warrant by the Knox County Sheriff’s Office.

Represented by attorney James Giles, Raver told Judge Otho Eyster that she created a health and safety risk for her children by choosing to live with an abuser. Through attorney deliberations, Raver had two counts reduced to first-degree misdemeanors, while the other two counts remained at third-degree felonies. The felonies would constitute 30 months in jail upon sentencing, and the misdemeanors 180 days, which could be served concurrently. Raver would be subject to post-release control after leaving jail.

A pre-sentencing investigation was ordered and Raver is expected to be sentenced Friday, March 8. She remains in the Knox County Jail under a $100,000 bond.
