The child endangerment charge a federal offense, and brings Shifflet's total of charges to eight.

The alleged incidents range from 1986 to 1999.

Shifflet was arrested Monday night.

The arrest was made possible with cooperation from the private citizens, and as part of the case's on-going investigation.
