NEWPORT-Lora Elizabeth Gregg, 40, of Rankin Hill Road, in Newport, was arrested recently and charged with child abuse and neglect because she did not take protective measures for her two daughters from a man indicated in a child molestation case in 2008, the Cocke County Sheriff's Department reported.

Gregg was arrested May 20 at 3 a.m., Det. Kevin Benton reported.

On Aug. 24, 2012, a Department of Children's Services worker spoke with Gregg about a very close acquaintance of hers who had allegedly been "indicated" in a 2008 child molestation case, according to Det. Benton's report.
