An Altoona couple who were facing charges of endangering the welfare of children were each sentenced on Monday, to a year of probation. 30 year old Clifford Harris and 23 year old Jessica Harris, entered no contest pleas to the charges. They told the judge that they have since taken measures to address the conditions and why they developed in the first place. The charges against the couple came after caseworkers with the Blair County Children, Youth, and Families were called in to the home on Cherry Avenue in Altoona, where five kids were found living along with rotted food, flies and other insects, and unsafe sleeping conditions.
