MOTHER OF SLAIN CHILD PLEADS GUILTY TO ELEVEN CHARGES

The mother, of a child killed in Clinton County, pled guilty recently to eleven charges. According to Clinton County State’s Attorney John Hudspeth, Valerie Schoolfield pled guilty to one count of endangering the life of a child, eight counts of obstruction of justice, and two counts of conspiracy to obstruct justice in the case of the death of her son, 3 year-old Joseph Schoolfield in January 2009. Joseph was beaten to death by Schoolfield’s boyfriend, Scott Endicott, who was sentenced to 60 years in prison last July for the death of the child. Schoolfield allegedly tried to help Endicott conceal the crime scene with text messages on how to move around certain bedroom items. First degree murder charges against Schoolfield were dismissed after the plea agreement. She is facing up to 40 years imprisonment and her sentencing hearing is scheduled for Tuesday, December 21.
