Two say mother asked them to lie about abuse

DADE CITY -- Two children told Pasco County sheriff's deputies Wednesday that their mother knew they had been molested by their stepfather and told them to lie to investigators about the touching, deputies said.

Sarah D. Krnaich, 26, of 38546 Patti Lane, was arrested Friday afternoon and charged with child neglect, deputies said.

Krnaich was hoping to move back to West Virginia with the children and their stepfather, deputies said. She told the children to lie so the charges against the stepfather stemming from the alleged touching would be dropped, deputies said.

Krnaich was being held Saturday at the county jail in Land O'Lakes on $2,500 bail, deputies said.
