Woman Charged for Leaving Kids in Hot Car

A woman was recently found guilty of child abuse by the Maricopa County Attorney’s Office when she left her two children in a car this August. The mother, 30 years old, went inside a store while her 9-month-old and a 23-month-old remained in her vehicle. The mother lives in Mesa, Arizona, and said she was running a quick errand at a party supply store during this time frame. After some investigation, authorities found out she left her children in the car for 22 minutes. This November she will go to court for sentencing.
