Woodstock mom charged with child endangerment

WOODSTOCK – A Woodstock woman has been charged with child endangerment after police said she failed to provide her three children with hot water or a working toilet.

Jennifer L. Frogge, 31, of 13620 Kishwaukee Valley Road, was arrested Wednesday on three counts of endangering the life or health of a child, each a Class A misdemeanor.

The charges follow a two-month investigation by the McHenry County Sheriff's Office and the Department of Children and Family Services.

The sheriff's office had been contacted by a family member in regard to Frogge's children and the condition of her home, according to a news release.

"When members of the Criminal Investigation Division inspected Jennifer's home with her consent, the Woodstock Fire Protection District was called and the home was 'red tagged,' meaning that areas of the house were uninhabitable," Undersheriff Andrew Zinke said.

The children have been placed with their father, who did not live in the home.
