Alright is this REALLY a felony? I’ve seen parents do much more actual harm and get less punishment! I’m not condoning it. But I’ve seen parents take the child to the bar, leave them in the car for hours, drive home drunk as hell and don’t get charged with a felony.
A California couple was arrested on Friday after they left their baby at home unattended to go to a bar, police said.
Alex Morawhitehurst, 30, and Krystal Williams, 27, were arrested after police were called to the Keg Room bar in Oroville about a fight just after 9:30 p.m., FOX40 Sacramento reported. Williams was taken into custody on suspicion of public intoxication.
As they were being held in jail, Morawhitehurst told officers that the couple had left their 1-year-old son in their house by himself. Officers went to the home and found the boy asleep in the living room, FOX40 reported.
A sliding glass door into the house was left open.
The boy was placed with Children’s Services representatives. Morawhitehurst and Williams were charged with felony child endangerment.
