Dixey was charged with the offense on July 20, 2022 after Blackwell police was contacted by the Department of Human Services about a possible case of child abuse.

Police report that DHS workers showed officers a photo of a nine-month old with a large facial injury. (see story)

Sentencing for Dixey is deferred for five years and she is ordered to complete A Break The Cycle Class, complete parenting class and complete 100 hours of community service.

In a second case in which Dixey is charged with a felony count of child neglect, filed on March 8, 2022, Dixey entered the same plea and the case is to remain open until obligations are completed.
