Local Woman Pleads Guilty to Reckless Endangerment of a Child

NORTHAMPTON, Mass. (WGGB) —  A local woman pleaded guilty Monday to reckless endangerment of a child.

34-year-old Mackenzie Tarjick admitted she never contacted authorities after learning her then-husband had repeatedly sexually abused a young girl.

Northwestern District Attorney David Sullivan called the sexual abuse “horrific.”

In June, a Hampshire County jury found Tarjick’s former husband, Aaron Tarjick, guilty of 17 counts of child sex abuse.

He’s currently serving 19 to 25 years in state prison.

Mackenzie Tarjick will be sentenced in Hampshire Superior Court on August 20th.
