Wellsville mom’s boyfriend also charged in abuse case

Jamie Emery

WELLSVILLE, Ohio (WYTV) – The boyfriend of a Wellsville woman who police say was starving her children is now in trouble himself.

The Morning Journal reports that Jason Thompson of Mercer, Pa. is also charged with endangering children. He is being held in the Columbiana County Jail.

Jaimie Emery, 34, was charged last week last week after her 8-year-old son showed up to school so underweight his ribs were showing. The boy says he was given only one meal a day and that withholding food was used as a punishment.

Emery has two other boys, aged 7 and 10, in the home and a 9-year-old daughter currently in foster care due to a sexual assault charge pending against Emery’s father, according to Emery.

Emery is scheduled to appear in court Tuesday, Sept. 8.
