  • A Neosho man pleaded guilty Wednesday to a misdemeanor charge of second-degree child endangerment.
    Devin Robinson, 19, was arrested in February for supplying two minors with a  variation of synthetic marijuana.
    Neosho Police responded to a possible drug overdose call in the 400 block of Glenview Place, where they found two girls, at the time ages 15 and 16, “in an altered state of mind and vomiting,” according to a statement released by the department last February.
    Neosho Police Chief Dave McCracken said Robinson was believed to be the boyfriend of one of the minors. According to the department's statement, Robinson had given the juveniles “incense, or synthetic marijuana to smoke,” that he had purchased at Main Stop convenience store, 320 E. Main St. in Neosho.
    On Wednesday, Robinson was sentenced to two years suspended probation and ordered to undergo outpatient drug and alcohol assessment, according to Missouri Case.Net.
    Though herbal incense can legally be sold, it's marketed as an artificial drug, a marijuana substitute not covered under Missouri's 2011 ban on K-2, K-3 and other artificial drugs.
