Maryville teen pleads guilty to endangerment; no sexual assault charge is filed

Matthew Barnett, 19, also apologized to his victim, Daisy Coleman, who was 14 at the time. The charge was misdemeanor child endangerment, not a felony sexual assault. “There was insufficient evidence,” said Jean Peters Baker, the Jackson County prosecuting attorney appointed special prosecutor in the case.
