JASPER COUNTY, MS (WDAM) -

Bond for a Jasper County couple accused of felony child neglect has been set at $25,000 each. 

Christopher and Sasha Ratcliff were arrested after authorities said they waited several days to bring their two-year-old child to the hospital when a family friend allegedly molested her.

The couple said they waited because they had done drugs and didn't want to be tested. 

Investigators said the friend didn't abuse the child.

But, they said they couldn't determine who had molested her because of the delay in her treatment.

She is now with child protective services, along with the couple's other five-year-old child.
