Have seen this news story?
“Treffly Coyne was out of her car for just minutes and no more than 10 yards away.
But that was long and far enough to land her in court after a police officer spotted her sleeping 2-year-old daughter alone in the vehicle; Coyne had taken her two older daughters to pour $8.29 in coins into a Salvation Army kettle.
Minutes later, she was under arrest — the focus of both a police investigation and a probe by the state’s child welfare agency.”
This is ridiculous if you ask me. This mother is at risk of spending up to a year in jail? An outrage! Why is walking 10 yards away from a child considered endangerment? Am I missing something?
Tell me what you think.
