Warrants were served on the supervisor of a Sullivan County children's center on Thursday, marking the second arrest in an investigation of alleged sex and alcohol at the facility. Rosa Ema Honeycutt, 70, of Larkins Street in Bristol, Tenn., was indicted Tuesday by a Sullivan County grand jury. The Sullivan County Sheriff's Office says Honeycutt is charged with violation of duty to report child sex abuse, as she allegedly knew about inappropriate actions, but failed to alert authorities. In May an investigation was launched into incidents at Tri-State Children's Home, 1792 Vance Tank Road. SCSO Public Information Officer Leslie Earhart says it was spurred when a family member of an employee brought allegations to police.
