Parenting advice YouTuber Ruby Franke of Utah set to take plea agreement in child abuse case

by · National Post

A Utah mother of six who gave parenting advice via a once-popular YouTube channel called “8 Passengers,” is expected to enter a plea agreement at a hearing Monday on charges that she abused and starved two of her children, her attorney said.

Winward Law announced in a statement Friday that the alleged abuse occurred while Ruby Franke was influenced by a relationship counselor who led her to “a distorted sense of morality.” The statement does not say what charges Franke might plead guilty to or if any sentencing agreement had been reached.
