23-year-old Kenneth Strand pled guilty to neglect of a dependent person Friday morning in Marion County District Court. The case involving the Knoxville man stems back to an April incident. Strand left his two sons alone for about 10 minutes in his apartment as he walked to pick up a pizza. One son was two-years-old at the time; the other hadn’t turned one yet. Strand will be sentenced in September and faces a maximum of 10 years in prison.
