Mother in custody case charged for alleged abuse
April 1, 2022
One of the mothers involved in a very public Cloquet child custody case was charged with three counts of malicious punishment of a child last week. Carlton County attorney Lauri Ketola announced Thursday that Nicole Ammesmaki would be charged. Her sister, Dawn Ammesmaki, won’t be charged because the accusation of child abuse against her involve reported instances from three years ago, beyond the statute of limitations.
Ketola also announced that she is also charging a teacher at the Fond du Lac Head Start, Kayla Hansen, for failing to report possible maltreatment of a child.
