The common law wife of Nathaniel McBryar, recently convicted of child abuse charges, has now been charged herself.

Lt. Dale Brewster, of the Jackson County Sheriff's Office, said Katherine Arleen Young, 23 of Scottsboro, was charged with one count of willful abuse of a child last Friday.

Brewster served Young in the Jackson County Jail, where she is currently being held on bond revocation, following March arrest on drug charges.

McBryar accepted a plea agreement from prosecutors on August 18, pleading guilty to three counts of child abuse.

Circuit Judge Jenifer Holt sentenced McBryar to a total of 55 years in state prison. In each charge, he was sentenced to 18 years, 20 years and 17 years respectively. The 18-year and 17-year sentences will run consecutively, meaning he will serve 35 years. The 20-year sentence will run concurrent.

During the sentencing, McBryar's attorney Robert Ray issued a statement on behalf of his client.

"[McBryar] has pleaded guilty and accepts responsibility," Ray said. "He only hopes the mother will be prosecuted."

Brewster said Young was charged with one count, under the sub-section of "having a legal duty to protect the victims."

[Young] failed to protect her children from abuse," said Brewster.

Young filed a complaint against McBryar last August for child abuse of the couple's two small daughters, a two-year-old and 18-month-old at the time.

McBryar was arrested that day with bond later set at $2.1 million, the largest in county history. At his sentencing, Holt credited him with 370 days jail time served.

In March, Young was arrested after Scottsboro police officers received information of possible drug activity at the Scottsboro Housing Authority in the 200 block of Sebring Drive.

Officers located syringes, syringe packaging and a syringe with liquid which tested positive for meth.

Young was charged with possession of a controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Two months later, she was arrested again, charged with possession of drug paraphernalia.

Young has been in jail since August 12. Her bond was revoked three days later.

If found guilty of the child abuse charge, Young could face one to 10 years in state prison.

Unfortunately she is guilty by association with that monster she was living with. Sometime there is so much evil in a person that it extends off to other people and she got caught just being close to this mega-monster. I will be praying that a jury will be smart enough to realize this and that the real monster didn't get what he deserved but was shown leniency.

You are the dumbass. She is guilty because she DID NOT take care of the kids. You are not capable of thinking. Get your head out of your ass and realize the kids need justice. NOT HER or HIM.
